Well done the Dream Team! By Ginny Studd, Financial Director
Sowerbys Dream Team celebrated 10 years of Dream Team/Race for Life when a team of 18 women took part in the Race for Life at Houghton Hall on Tuesday 21st July.
On a lovely sunny summers evening just under 2000 ladies ran, jogged and walked their way around a 5k course to raise money for Cancer Research. Every runner was taking part in celebration of the life of someone touched by cancer, both past and present.
The Dream Team set out to raise £1000 with the promise of a further £500 from the Directors if that goal was reached. Well as I write, we have smashed that!! At the moment, with Gift Aid included we have just gone past £3700 which is a phenomenal achievement, and one that all the team are justly very proud.
Already the Dream Team are planning next year’s event, some have already signed up.
"I just wanted to say that we have recently purchased a house via Sowerbys and wanted to comment on the excellent customer service received from Alison Carter. Alison was extremely accommodating from day one; as we live in Hertfordshire and wanted to make only one day trip to view a number of houses initially. After the initial offer was accepted Alison went above and beyond to make sure that exchange happened, liaising between the Vendors, Vendors Solicitors and ourselves. As with all these things something always goes wrong but because of her involvement we believe it was as pain free as possible. Once completion had taken place she helped with meter readings and our keys and an interior designer we have arranged. I know Estate Agents often get bad press and often good news or praise is overlooked or not given so I wanted to say how much we appreciate all Alisonâ€™s efforts."
