Agents are invited to make a splash next month by getting involved in the Great British Property Paddle in aid of Agents Giving.
The event, taking place between June 8 and July 2, is a sponsored paddle along the waterways of England, starting in Tonbridge in Kent and finishing in Windsor – a distance of over 300 miles.
The Great British Property Paddle is the brainchild of Andrew Trantum from Embrace Mortgage Services, part of the LSL Group, who is set to kayak and canoe the entire course along with Jon Cooke, managing director of Your Move, and Danny Hodge, an outdoor pursuits and canoe instructor.
Agents Giving patron Phil Spencer is also set to join the team for a leg or two of the journey.
Agents are invited to pick up a paddle and join them for a stretch of the route, with equipment made available to anyone intrepid enough to get out on the water. No experience is necessary – all that is needed is the ability to swim.
The idea is that everyone should aim to raise as much money in sponsorship as possible for good causes which include charities supported by Agents Giving such as Macmillan Cancer Support.
Trantum said: “We now have a healthy number of agents from up and down the country signed up for the Property Paddle but it would be great if we could persuade more to join us.
“As long as you don’t mind getting a bit wet, it really will be a lot of fun coupled with a great sense of camaraderie. Of course, we will be raising money for good causes in the process which will make it even better.”
The event is being sponsored by estate agencies Lenwell and Davis Tate and also the Property Academy.
