Women in Residential Property Christmas event raises over £1,000 for the charity, Ella’s
The Women in Residential Property network (WIRP) which aims to encourage collaboration and understanding between women working across the residential property industry raised over £1,000 for the charity, Ella’s at their last event of 2020.
Commenting, Emma Vigus, Chair of WIRP:
“We’ve been supporting Ella’s for the last 18 months. It’s a small charity that provides vital support to women who’ve been the victims of trafficking and slavery. The pandemic has made everyone’s lives tougher, but it’s been even harder for the team at Ella’s who’ve been faced with the challenges of continuing to provide vital support during lockdown. We’re so proud of the work Ella’s does and we’re delighted to be able to support them.”
2020 has seen membership of WIRP grow to over 400 with 50 ladies attending the last meeting of the year. Members come from a broad range of sectors from Estate Agency through to Surveying, Conveyancing and Mortgage Broking.
Commenting, recently, on the value of the Group, Kate Faulkner, Chair of the Home Buyers and Sellers Group:
“A refreshing, vibrant group of people that are smart, kind and innovative. Some of the best discussions of current issues I have, are on this group.”
Membership is free of charge and the Group will continue to hold regular zoom meetings throughout 2021. The next WIRP meeting is scheduled for the 4th February when the guest speaker will be Dr Evelyn Ong, a Transplant Surgeon at Birmingham Children’s’ Hospital. Evelyn will discussing the lessons to be learnt from the NHS’s approach to Crisis Management
