Surveyors across the country got their fundraising kit on for LandAid this summer with two fantastic football focused challenges.

The RICS World Cup Fantasy Football tournament saw over 3,500 people sign up, raising £1,750 for LandAid. Harvey Gill of Telereal Trillium won with his team - inaptly titled Murder on Zidane's Floor - leading the way from start to finish.

Chartered surveyors CS2 invited clients to lace up their boots for their World Cup 5-a-side football tournament at Goals, Wembley, on the 15 July. 

A total of eight teams participated in the tournament. Joining the CS2 England and Netherlands teams were; AOS Studley – Spain, LaSalle Investment Management – Germany, Morgan Tucker – Brazil, Farebrother – Australia, Hermes Real Estate – Argentina, and Goals – Nigeria. In great similarity to this years’ World Cup, the tournament came down to an Argentina vs Germany final. After a great show, resulting in the game going to penalties, Germany triumphed! 

CS2 is delighted that the event raised a total of £400 for LandAid, which will help work towards improving the lives of young people in the UK.
