Coombe Residential, a family-owned estate agency serving the local community for nearly 30 years, is proudly supporting the NSPCC.
Directors Hani and Basma Madanat feel a shared ethos with the NSPCC. Coombe Residential supports many local schools including: Coombe Girls, Coombe Hill Infants and Juniors, Donhead, Hollymount School, Holy Cross, Marymount International School, Rokeby School, Willington School and Wimbledon High as well as having supported The Thames Youth Orchestra for 10 years and being a Platinum supporter of The Thames Philharmonic Orchestra.
It is their hope that Coombe Residential’s generosity will ensure many more children have a happy childhood and that their support will enable more children to remain safe from abuse.
The relationship between the NSPCC and Coombe Residential came through an introduction from Sarah Austin, Founder of the Really Helpful Club. They are a nationwide sharing platform, offering a free online and offline community for positive, like-minded people and have fundraised an amazing £114,000 for the NSPCC’s service Childline which they hope to double at their second fundraising event happening in Chelsea later this year.
Contributions to the NSPCC help by empowering children with the power they need to stay safe:
· £4 could pay for 1 of NSPCC’s trained volunteer counsellors to answer a child's call for help to Childline
· £580 could cover the cost for NSPCC’s Speak out Stay safe programme to visit 1 primary school and speak to every child aged 5-11.
When asked what inspired him to support the NSPCC, Mr Madanat said, “We feel it is essential to support future generations and we were very impressed with the good work the NSPCC does. The local community is very important, but what’s great about the NSPCC is that they help children locally and across the country.”
Lloyd Butcher, Corporate Partnerships Manager at the NSPCC added, “The NSPCC receives around 90% of funding from generous supporters and companies like Coombe Residential who believe every childhood is worth fighting for. We are grateful for their generous donation which will help our vital work.”
