Women in Property donation boosts charities

A Christmas donation from one of Bristol Sport Foundation’s Nascence Project partners will be used to fund girl’s rugby in Bristol and extra-curricular clubs in the city’s low-socio-economic wards.

Women in Property South West raised £1,145 at their annual Christmas luncheon, with the money being split between Bristol Bears Community Foundation’s Eagle Project and the development of clubs in underprivileged areas of Bristol.

“As an ambassador for the Bristol Sport Foundation, I’m really proud that, through Women in Property South West’s continued support, we have raised more awareness and vital funding for their programmes,” said Carly Willis, from Women in Property.

“We are proud to be part of this South West initiative, which gives a range of people from the city opportunities and experiences they would not usually have access to due to lack of funding and circumstance.”

Chief community officer, Ben Breeze, added: “We are really proud to continue our association with Women in Property South West and are delighted to use the funds raised at the Christmas lunch to help develop women’s and girls’ sport and to equip young people with the skills to fall in love with sport and enjoy being active.”

Women in Property creates opportunities, expands knowledge and inspires change for women working in the property and construction industry.
