Fundraising pages of all participants will remain open until 18 November, giving plenty of time to still pledge support.


Paul Morrish, Chief Executive, LandAid said: ‘At a time when the cost-of-living crisis is deepening and the weather is getting colder, it is even more important that we are there for the most vulnerable people in our society. It has been brilliant to see professionals from across the property and real estate industry come together for yet another Steptober. The sign ups always exceed our expectations, and this year is no different, being our largest to date. It’s amazing to see how much the industry cares and the subsequent social impact that is continually being created by raising valuable funds to help young people experiencing homeless across the country. A big thank you to everyone involved!’
