At Paramount, our people are continuously committed to fundraising and supporting causes that are important to us and our community. We have formed the Paramount Collective – a group of us who are particularly engaged to help select and organize our charity events for 2019. In the previous years we have set the bar high with sponsored office “Bake Off” themed competitions, night walks, ‘sleep outs’ (where we slept outside overnight to raise funds for Shelter and support those having to sleep rough during the winter), and ‘Strictly Agents Giving.’
We purposefully do not choose just one specific charity to support, instead favouring to help and support as many different initiatives as possible. That being said, there are a few charities that we continually pledge our support to: Agents Giving and Brent Foodbank.
We are immensely proud that our Managing Director of Lettings, Spencer Lawrence, sits on the Board for Agents Giving, the industry charity for lettings and estate agents. Agents Giving works to encourage and promote the fundraising activities of estate agents, allowing them to support over 80 different charities and projects that affect local London communities as well as national causes. Spencer’s dedication to this charity allows the whole team at Paramount to be heavily involved in all of their events. In 2019, members of our team will be running, climbing, and taking on a 7 km obstacle course to raise funds.
In addition to Agents Giving, Paramount works very closely with the dedicated volunteers at our local food bank - Brent Foodbank. We often work with them with a list of what they need at any one time to try and help them in their fantastic work. Our office remains a collection point for food donations all year round - so if you do have anything you wish to donate to the centre, please feel free to drop it in to us.
March of this year will see dedicated members of the Paramount team showcasing the results of months of training and fundraising in the London Landmark’s Half Marathon on behalf of St. John’s Hospice. We will also be holding a Pub Quiz night to fundraise for the Cancerkin Centre, which provides support for people with cancer and their families.
To date the Paramount Collective have raised over £100,000 for various charities both locally and nationally. Please take a look at our blogs or social media pages for more information!
