Over 160 members of the team at M7 Real Estate (“M7”), the pan-European investor and asset manager, have raised a total of more than €7,000 for 87 charities of their choice.
Over 200 staff members, initiated by their Marketing & Events Manager SJ Fallick, were challenged to walk 7,000 steps within 24 hours and make a donation to charity before nominating a further two colleagues to take part.
In just 20 days, around 80% of M7’s team across 14 countries had participated. Altogether the team raised money for a number of both international and local charities tackling issues such as homelessness, mental health, child safety, illness and disease, international aid and the endangerment of wildlife. Those charities included: LandAid, MIND, NHS Charities, Street Child United, Save the Children, Red Cross and UNICEF.
Richard Croft, Executive Chairman of M7, commented: “I would like to thank every single person across our European offices who took part in what has been an incredible effort to raise money for charity in a short space of time. On this occasion we felt it was important to enable our people to give money to charities close to their own hearts, not just our charity partners, LandAid and Street Child United. Everyone’s willingness to get involved has made me immensely proud.”
