Charity means a lot to all of the team at JPG.  We believe that everyone has a responsibility to help others, and that is why we look after the day to day running of the Agents Giving website (which we built in 2020) and the Facebook page.  We post every day and update all of the articles and events on the website, we sit on the production team for the events and take part in as many of the industry events as we can.  It means a lot to us, and we hope, if you are an estate agent, letting agent or property industry supplier reading this article, that you consider signing up as a supporter and doing your bit too.
