Partner since: 2006

Amount raised in 2018-19: £30,810.73

Abstract Securities’ has been a LandAid partner since 2006, providing fundraising and support which has been invaluable in aiding our mission. Last year they raised £30,810.73– enough to provide more than two bed spaces for vulnerable young people.

Abstract Securities also sponsored the first ever LandAid Steptober, the property industry-wide step challenge, brainchild of CEO Mark Glatman. Steptober raised £133,993 in its first year, and saw more than 500 property professionals take part, racking up over 166 million steps to end youth homelessness, and will be back again this year.

Mark Glatman, Founder and Chief Executive of Abstract Securities said: ‘It has been an absolute pleasure to be the headline sponsor for the first ever Steptober. I have been wanting to have an industry-wide step challenge for a long time, knowing that this was a great way to harness the competitive nature of LandAid’s supporters. It’s been a great way to motivate my staff to get active, with some like Archie, from Abstract, who took home the prize for the most steps taking this challenge to the extreme! Thanks so much to everyone who took part – every step you took has taken us one step closer to ending youth homelessness.'
