LandAid's Christmas Card Alternative raises £32,000 to tackle youth homelessness

James de Souza | 02.12.16

A fantastic £32,000 has been raised from LandAid's Christmas Card Alternative campaign, which closed earlier this week.

27 property companies took part in the campaign, which called on supporters to cut out corporate Christmas cards and donate the cash they’d usually spend on sending cards to LandAid.

In return, each company's logo was included in a thank you advert printed by Estates Gazette and Property Week and played on ECN screens around London, and every participant received a personalised email signature to send out to their supporters.

Funds raised from the campaign will be used to bring empty properties around the UK back into use as homes for young people who are homeless. And with an estimated 120,000 young people expected to face homelessness this winter*, your donations are more vital than ever.

Annington, Bericote, BNP Paribas Real Estate, British Property Federation, Broadgate Estates, ECN, Frogmore, Gerald Eve, Grosvenor, Helical, Heywood & Partners, IPSX, James Andrew International, M & G Investments, McKay Securities, Muse Developments, Native Land, Land Securities, Picton, Paragon, PropertyServe UK, SEGRO, Shaftesbury, Telereal Trillium, Tuffin Ferraby Taylor, Valad and Venn Partners.
