This festive season there are four ‘Kings of Christmas’ rather than the usual three as four branches of Kings Estates and Lettings raise a life-changing amount of money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The staggering total of £16,445 has been raised by Kings Estate and Letting, who have been donating money to Macmillan Cancer Support for every letting and sale of a house or flat since September 2012.
£16,000 is a huge sum of money raised for Macmillan Cancer Support, the UK’s leading cancer care charity, who provide emotional, financial, practical and medical support to cancer patients, their family and friends.
Macmillan’s Kent Fundraising Manager, Jade Millsom, said: “The money could fund a Macmillan Nurse for 4 months which is an amazing achievement.”
The teams from the branch offices in Sevenoaks, Borough Green, Meopham, and Swanley have also been staunch participants and supporters in a number of fundraising activities including hosting the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ and they are currently planning an inter-branch sporting fundraiser to help raise further funds.
Jade Millsom, added: “Approximately 8,500 people in Kent are diagnosed with cancer every year and across the county we have a team of 134 Macmillan Healthcare Professionals working in hosptials and in the community. I am thrilled to be working with this caring company into 2015.”
Crispin Williams, proprietor of Kings Estate and Lettings, said: “I am absolutely delighted that the partnership Kings Estate and Lettings Agents has formed with Macmillan Cancer Support will be continuing for a third successive year. For every property that Kings sells or rents we give a contribution to Macmillan, so our thanks must also go to the owners, buyers and renters, who – by using Kings – help us to achieve this support for such a wonderful charity.
