MOV8 Helps Project Play Smash Target with Fun Run

MOV8 Helps Project Play Smash Target with Fun Run

Over the past 6 months MOV8 Real Estate has been working alongside the parent committee of Corstorphine Primary School to help them achieve their dream of creating a state of the art playground for the pupils of the school. Last year, we gave the school £5,000 but we also gave them a promise; to help them raise a further £5,000 towards their goal by creating and producing various different fundraising and education initiatives to engage pupils and parents. Our most recent success was a Fun Run, held on 13th June in St Margaret’s Park.

Whatever The Weather

Considering the scorching temperatures we had just the day before, we were particularly unlucky with the weather on the day of the Fun Run. It was a cold, damp day but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the children and their parents who came, ready to run around the park for a great cause! If anything it displays the fantastic attitude of the parent and the pupils of this lovely school – don’t let a little bit of rain put you off! The volunteers also did a fantastic job of making the event fun and lively; their enthusiasm certainly is infectious!

Running and Bouncing

The total amount raised from sponsorship collected by children participating and the stalls was £1,952.54, with more money promised soon meaning we’ll hit the £2,000 mark! All children who participated came away with their very own certificate and medal, as well as a MOV8 teddy bear and balloon. They then enjoyed the various stalls set up around the park with their parents and friends, such as ice cream, face painting, nail painting, some lovely bits and bobs for sale and a bouncy castle!

Commitment to our Pledge

We are delighted to announce that this event took the MOV8 total funds raised to over £5,000, the amount we pledged to Project Play to help them raise after our initial contribution. It was also achieved in just half the time as our deadline was December 2015! None of this would have been possible without the help of our wonderful staff who routinely volunteer their time and resources to help us give something back to our local communities. Thank you to all of them who have baked cakes, eaten cakes, blown up balloons, talked to parents, designed posters, entertained children and given up your personal time to do so. We also want to thank them for the hard work they do every day, in the office. If it wasn’t for our fantastic staff working so hard on behalf of our clients we wouldn’t be set aside 10% of our profits to dedicate to great causes such as these.

So thank you and congratulations Project Play!

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
