Estate agents supports Hatfield charity
TIMES Territory estate agents, Putterills, is aiming to raise �10,000 for Hatfield-based national charity, the Willow Foundation, which provides special days for seriously ill young adults.
To start, a donation will be made from each of Putterills’ nine offices – in Knebworth, WGC, Welwyn, Harpenden, Hitchin, Stevenage, St. Albans, Royston, as well as its new homes office – for every completed property sale during 2011.
Directors and employees of these offices will take part in fundraising activities, sponsored runs, cycling or walks in order to try and reach the �10,000 target.
Mark Shearing, director at Putterills, said: ‘We, as a company, are all very committed to helping this very worthy cause and delighted to be able to help the Willow Foundation’s great work in making some really memorable and life changing days for the young people they work with.
“We have had a very good start to 2011 so contributions to the fund are well under way.”

To date the charity has provided more than 7,000 special days for young adults living with cancer, cystic fibrosis, motor neurone disease, organ failure and muscular dystrophy, amongst other life-threatening conditions.
Mark added: “This target sum will help the charity to provide morale-boosting special day experiences for those living with a range of life-threatening conditions.
“Special days provide much needed time out from hospital visits and treatment, giving people the chance to spend quality time with family and friends, also a chance to feel normal and to create precious memories for the future.”
