Following his induction as a LandAid Ambassador, Jonny Pitts, Senior Development Manager at Telereal Trillium was determined to make a difference.
‘Give a little love to LandAid’ was born and a year later Telereal Trillium and its staff have raised and donated just under £25k, enabling LandAid to support more young people across the UK. Many different activities took place – from baking cakes, running marathons, a silent auction…to a bagpipes serenade.
When LandAid launched its pro bono scheme, allowing partners to offer their professional services to LandAid’s clients free of charge, Telereal Trillium was one of the first companies to sign up. Last year, Telereal Trillium staff assisted homelessness charity Crisis in their search for a new property and negotiating the best deal, as well as providing advice on leases and a grant application to Keyhouse.
Graham Mynott, Head of Project at Keyhouse said: “My thanks to James Tootell for his work on this - it is greatly appreciated and has been very helpful…. A big tick for pro-bono work from me.”
Landaid, the property industry charity, works to improve the lives of children and young people in the UK who experience disadvantage due to their economic or social circumstances. Telereal Trillium has been a LandAid Foundation Partner since 2010, providing both financial support and free property expertise through pro bono volunteering. In 2011/12, Telereal Trillium planned and executed the remodelling of both LandAid’s offices and Centrepoint’s headquarters (the UK's leading charity for homeless young people).
We look forward to continuing our partnership with LandAid, supporting their new mission ‘helping to end youth homelessness’ and encourage everyone to give a little love to LandAid.
