Spread the Glove – Last Chance to Donate Your Winter Woolies for Big Issue Vendors

Spread the Glove – Last Chance to Donate Your Winter Woolies for Big Issue Vendors

Thank you to all of the staff and clients who have contributed so generously to the Spread The Glove campaign that we’ve been running on behalf of The Big Issue. Your generosity has been overwhelming! We’ve had people stop in our offices to deposit unwanted woolies in our collection boxes.

One of our clients even stopped by The Big Issue headquarters on Queensferry Street to deliver hand-knitted scarves in person after seeing our original appeal before Christmas! It’s not too late to help us to help others and to hand-in unwanted items to either of our offices or to The Big Issue office on Queensferry Street, however we shall be removing the boxes on 31 March so please bring anything you have before then.

The MOV8 team was lucky enough to be invited to The Big Issue social gathering earlier this month where we chatted and danced with the vendors. We heard stories of how the gloves, hat and scarves that people had donated have made so much of a difference to the daily lives of the vendors as they sell their magazines on the street, especially in the recent terrible weather.

We’d love any old gloves, hats or scarves you can get your mitts on! Either pop them in to either of our offices or take them to The Big Issue HQ on Queensferry Street before 31 March.

Thank you to everyone who has donated on behalf of MOV8 and The Big Issue!

The Prime Minister at 8.30pm on Monday, 23 March 2020 announced unprecedented measures restricting movement of the UK population in order to combat the spread of the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic.

We are experiencing a huge surge of calls and email requests following this announcement, at a time when our capacity is more restricted than normal by sickness absence. Our capacity to answer calls will be restricted and more calls than normal will end in voicemail. Those voicemails will then be emailed to our central, team email accounts and allocated appropriately to the relevant staff members.

Viewing Requests

Anyone hoping to view a property will be unable to arrange a viewing in the coming three weeks. Reassuring our clients through this particularly difficult time has to be our top priority.

We will have to take the unprecedented step of not responding to viewing requests in the meantime. When restrictions are lifted on movement we would ask that, if you remain interested, you submit a fresh request.

Please Remain Patient - We Are in This Together

We respectfully ask that anyone first makes contact with us by email in the coming days.

We are all in this together. We ask that everyone tries to be kind to each other and to our staff throughout what are already the most stressful and anxious of times for everyone, let alone someone who is supposed to be moving home.

Best wishes and be safe,
MOV8 Real Estate
