Cubitt & West estate agents has donated more than £100,000 to Sussex food banks to support their local community.
Aware of the impact of the cost of living crisis on families across Sussex, Cubitt & West estate agents donated £100 to food banks every time their agents attended a property valuation. The campaign has raised over £110,000 for food banks across Sussex, as well as local community pantries administered through Sussex Community Foundation.
On top of the donations, agents for the firm have visited local food banks to volunteer their time to help others.
Across South East England, Arun Estates – the parent company of Cubitt and West estate agents – has raised over £750,000 since January, helping over 90 food banks across the region.
Aldo Sotgiu, Group Managing Director of Arun Estates, said:
“It has been a truly humbling experience for all of us to learn more about how food banks support our local communities. To be able to support and provide in a way that gives back to our community is a great feeling and there is still so much more help we need to give over the coming months.
I want to take this opportunity to extend a huge thank you to all our staff and customers who have made this possible.”
Kevin Richmond, CEO of Sussex Community Foundation, said:
“We are very grateful to Cubitt and West estate agents for providing this valuable support over such a harsh time for people across Sussex.
We know how much it has been appreciated by the amazing people who run these local food banks and those in the community who are depending on them right now.”
