As a dedicated trustee and board member of Agents Giving, I help to play a pivotal role in orchestrating a series of impactful charity events throughout the year. This UK-based charity focuses on supporting the property industry’s collective efforts to give back to the community.
Key Events that Make a Difference
- Agents Giving Charity Summer Ball: Hosted at Epsom Downs Racecourse, this glamorous event combines entertainment with philanthropy. Featuring the Agents Got Talent competition and the Fundraising Champion Awards, it’s a night of celebration, networking, and support for UK charities related to the property industry.
- Dragon Boat Race: A highlight of the Agents Giving calendar, the Dragon Boat Race is a day filled with fun, laughter, and community spirit. Teams comprising agents, suppliers, and families come together for a friendly competition that also serves as a significant fundraising opportunity.
- Agents Giving Day – Support Your Local Food Bank: This initiative, supported by the Guild of Property Professionals and the Relocation Agent Network, encourages agents to collect and donate essential items to local food banks. It’s a practical way to tackle hunger in local communities, demonstrating the industry’s commitment to social responsibility.
- The Great British Property Cycle: An annual event where property professionals cycle over thousands of miles to raise funds for charities like Mind, Trussell Trust, and Agents Giving. This event showcases the industry’s dedication to both physical activity and charitable giving.
I am so proud that our Social Angels involvement in these events, especially in fundraising during major industry gatherings, highlights our commitment to charitable causes, which not only bring the property industry together for a noble cause but also significantly contributing to the welfare of communities across the UK.
WHAT IS AGENTS GIVING CHARITY?
Agents Giving is the official charity for the Property Industry in the UK. Throughout the year Agents Giving organises a number of fundraising events including the Agents Giving Ball, attended by hundred of property people, to award the tremendous amount of fundraising that estate agents, letting agents and property industry suppliers carry out for UK charities throughout the year.
In addition, Agents Giving hold an annual day for collecting food for local food banks and The Trussell Trust to aid those less fortunate or homeless in the UK.
Agents Giving provide grant funds, in collaboration with The Guild of Property Professionals, for anybody within the property industry who is fundraising, from coffee mornings, to marathon running and everything in-between and whichever UK registered charity that they are fundraising for. The Agents Giving charity has helped thousands of charities and will continue to do so.
AGENTS GIVING DRAGON BOAT RACE
Each year we help to organise and then attend the Agents Giving Dragon Boat race, rowing our arms off for amazing causes. In 2023 we raised thousands of pounds for Mind Charity and The Trussell Trust food banks.

HOW WE HELP AGENTS GIVING
Charity means a lot to all of the team at Social Angels. 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.
