Here at Coalters, we focus on our customer service above all else, but this extends beyond just selling and letting property. We like to be an active part of the York community, and we dedicate significant time to raising money for good causes, in some quite varying ways!
The company reached double figures last year, and to celebrate our 10th Birthday we’ve been on a mission to raise £10,000 for charity. Three charities in fact; York Special Care Baby Unit, York Against Cancer, and SASH (Safe and Sound Homes – a poignant one given our business).
Celebrating with representatives from our chosen charities
To fundraise for these, we’ve taken on Tough Mudder (and totally smashed it!), worked with a York high school to race a kart in the Micklegate Soap Box Derby (where the kart very nearly ended up smashed!), and donated £10 for each and every board we put up round the city for the first part of our tenth year.
The Team doing Tough Mudder
The fundraising’s not finished yet though, with ideas floating round such as a chest wax for all the guys in the office! (Please help us reach £10,000 before this has to happen – the blokes are not keen on this idea!)
Not only do we raise money for charity, but we also try to do our bit for the environment too – many of the Coalters team either walk to work, use Park & Ride, cycle, or share lifts on the commute. One of our property photographers even uses his bike to get around the city for appointments to avoid having to use a car! We also re-use our for-sale and to-let boards whenever we can and have cut down on paper usage in the office and changed the type of the paper we use to be kinder to the environment. In addition, last year we changed our policy on how we print our marketing materials to ensure we no longer print materials that cannot be recycled.
If you have suggestions or ideas for how we can help the York community or environment, we’d love to hear from you – please get in touch!
