In January 2020 Bond Residential turned 10 years old! That means 10 years of helping our local community with all of their property needs. In that time, we have grown as a team, opened new branches, and with the support of our customers, become the leading estate agency in the local area, which we are incredibly proud of.
As a local business, we have a responsibility to the community in which we operate and one of the most enjoyable parts of our job is meeting our neighbours and getting involved with local events, businesses, and charities. On our 10th birthday, we want to celebrate by giving back.
This is why we’ve decided to support ‘Kids Inspire’: a local charity which has stolen our hearts with their compassion and help to those in need.
What do ‘Kids Inspire’ do?
The Essex-based charity supports children and young people recovering from traumatic experiences or dealing with emerging mental health difficulties. Psychological and behavioural issues can often arise from underlying trauma - which could be anything from family breakdown or conflict, bereavement, abuse or emerging mental health issues.
With each child they meet, they look and listen to how their past affects their present, reviewing closely the whole system revolving around them – school, family, peers, and more. Alongside that, they look at negative childhood experiences to make their practice trauma informed, addressing the causes rather than the symptoms.
Their overall aim is to make a positive difference to young lives by shaping their futures. Through proactive listening and therapeutic practice, they promote self-resilience, greater self-awareness, and relationship building to empower more positive life choices.
How will Bond Residential help in 2020?
To celebrate 10 years of success, and with the aim of giving back to those less fortunate, we will make a donation to Kids Inspire for every home we sell in 2020 across the company!
As well as this, all of Bond Residential staff will be given paid time off work to take part in a volunteering day so they can also experience what an amazing charity this is. They will be giving the opportunity to take part in one of the following events:
• Taking part in a Kids club for 3 hours joining in with painting, acting and outside play.
• Gardening & general maintenance of the Kids Inspire offices and gardens.
• London to Paris bike ride
• Christmas collection including wrapping presents and preparing food hampers for under privileged children.
This means whenever you are supporting us by using your local estate agents, you are also supporting local, vulnerable children in need. Throughout 2020, we will keep you updated on the money donated, so you know what an impact we’ve made together.
We’re proud to have serviced the local community in all of their buying, selling, renting, and letting needs, and it feels fantastic to be able to give some of that back locally.
