Reps Charity Golf Day 2018
The Reps Charity Golf Day was held in association with Women in Property (WIP) and raised over £2000 for our chosen charities.
What was the event all about?
The golf day was the second year of our annual event which raises awareness of the issue of gender parity in the property industry.
2017’s Women’s Charity Golf Day was a fantastic event with lots of representation from the industry. We raised over £1,500 for Dress for Success, our chosen charity. The 2018 event was even more successful than the first, with places filling up quickly and over £2000 raised for beatSCAD and Dress for Success. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone again in 2019!
In announcing the event, Caroline Pearce-Browne, Director, Reps Ltd says:
“I am so pleased that the Women’s Golf Day is becoming a landmark event in the commercial real estate calendar and that it serves to raise awareness of the issue of diversity in the property industry”. She continues “As a woman and a co-Director of a company operating in the property sphere, Reps corporate structure quite neatly summarises what we would like to see replicated across the sector.”
Our Chosen Charities 2018
In association with Women in Property, our chosen charities are:-
Dress for Success
This charity is an international, not-for-profit organisation that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to more than 145 cities in 23 countries and has helped more than 925,000 women work towards self-sufficiency.
Beat SCAD is a patient-led charity dedicated to raising awareness of the under-diagnosed heart condition, Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD), which affects mainly women.
The cause is unknown and cannot currently be predicted or prevented.
Vital research is necessary to understand WHY SCAD happens. Research is being conducted at The Glenfield Hospital in Leicester, and is gaining real momentum, raising awareness among cardiologists and providing information to specialists throughout the country. BeatSCAD has already donated £25,000 to the Leicester SCAD research project but still needs another £25,000 to keep this essential research going.
In November 2016 my Mother suffered a heart attack. It was diagnosed as SCAD.
With no answers, nor treatment proposed by the NHS, BeatSCAD arranged a GP referral to the specialist at The Glenfield Hospital in Leicester and only then was the condition fully diagnosed and treatment began.
BeatSCAD has been literally lifesaving, and cannot thank them enough.
