The Special Fund-raising Award was judged on ‘the person or company who consistently goes the extra mile and has shown extraordinary determination and motivation throughout the year in order to provide on-going support to their cause in whatever way they can’.
Michael Stoop, chairman of Agents Giving, congratulated Nicol and Co and said: “We have read about so many wonderful fund-raising events and this once again highlights that so many estate agents are doing some fantastic charity, fundraising and community work during some challenging times.”
Nicol and Co shared the Special Fundraising Award with Arun Estates of Horsham, West Sussex.
Matt Nicol, the company’s managing director, said: “The line up in this category were all great firms and I was honoured that the Nicol & Co team won the award alongside Arun Estates.”
Mr Nicol explained the company’s scheme initially resulted in £700 going to Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Charity, which supports Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.
Nicol abd Co has since made further donations and decided to extend the idea by donating £100 to community organisations or charities nominated by their vendors.
Mr Nicol added: “For every sale we achieve on new instructions received this year we shall donate £100 of our fee to the school, foodbank, community group, or local charity of our client’s choice.”
