Manning Stainton linked up with the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) at a local primary school to help raise much needed funds.
The Moortown branch of the area’s leading estate agent was among the main sponsors of the Brodetsky Primary School annual summer fair which was organised by Brodetsky Link (the school’s PTA).
The end-of-term extravaganza at the Henry Cohen Campus was extremely well attended by families and friends who found numerous stalls and attractions, including a bouncy castle, a golf game, a human fruit machine and a tombola, to help them part with their money. There was even a visit from the local fire brigade.
The money raised has been ear marked for a number of uses across the school including improvements to the library.
Emma Wisnia, Chair of Brodetsky Link, says: ‘The event exceeded our wildest expectations which is down to the hard work of the numerous volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to help.
‘I would also like to thank all those who turned up on the day and spent so generously and also our friends at Manning Stainton for their kind donation, every penny of which will be invested back into the school for the benefit of the children.’
Manning Stainton supported Brodetsky Primary School through its on-going Community Support Programme which has donated in excess of £50,000 to over 50 clubs, schools and other organisations in the last 12 months.
Other local beneficiaries have included Wigton Moor FC, Immaculate Heart of Mary Primary School, Alwoodley Primary School and the Brittle Bone Society.
Louise Lawrence, Manager of the Manning Stainton branch on Shadwell Lane in Moortown, explains: ‘We love supporting the communities in which we operate and are always on the lookout for worthwhile groups to help. It is our way of saying thank you for the amazing job they do.’
The Moortown branch is open seven days a week and the team is ready to take customer calls from 8am-8pm every day. It is one of a 19 Residential Sales and Lettings branches across West and North Yorkshire helping people move.
