BUCCLEUCH PROPERTY TEAM IN FURTHER FUNDRAISING DRIVE

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFollowing on from the fundraising success of the Buccleuch Property Challenge in September, the team unearthed their hidden treasures and heirlooms in an effort to further boost the charity pot.

On Sunday 3rd November, managing director David Peck rallied his troops to flog their wares at the Greenside Place Car Boot Sale in Edinburgh, raising a grand total of £500.

David, alongside his colleagues James Macleod, Cameron McKay, Dan Jones, Carolina Allison, Joanna Watson, Laura Fitzpatrick and Jon Alexander braved a chilly Scottish morning and put in a bid to offload the contents of their attics and garages.

The money raised from this latest activity is to be added to the annual total which will be presented to the company’s 2013 charity of the year, The Yard – an adventure play centre for disabled children and young people in Edinburgh.

After raising over £6,000 at the annual Property Challenge held on the Queensberry Estate in Dumfries and Galloway, which saw 150 property professionals from across the UK get wet and muddy to test their physical and mental endurance, the Buccleuch Property team hope to continue their fundraising success until the end of March.

David Peck, Managing Director of Buccleuch Property said: “The running total is looking very healthy, and with a few months left to top it up even further we look forward to presenting The Yard with a cheque that will enable even more young people and their families to benefit from their excellent facilities.”
