The Directors of West Hampstead based property agent, Paramount Properties, took to the phones to show their support for the DSA. The company decided to support the DSA throughout the month of April.
To raise funds, sales agent Jake Jacobs persuaded the Directors to call all of their contacts in a 90 minute session to see who could raise the most money within the short time-frame. Using their excellent negotiating skills, and inspired by Jake and his sister Chloe, the Directors raised an extraordinary £11,700! Chloe has Down’s syndrome and Jake and their whole family have always tried to raise as much awareness of the condition as they can.
Jake commented, “It’s amazing! I didn’t expect it to be anywhere near as much as we have raised, but as it is a cause so close to home it feels amazing! Going forward, we’d like to do so much more as I feel there is still such lack of understanding. I would like people to understand more about Down’s syndrome.”
Alexa Dizon, Head of Fundraising at the DSA says “Our thanks go to Jake, his fabulous Directors and everyone involved with Paramount Properties’ amazing fundraising for their generous support for the DSA. The money Paramount Properties have raised will help us to continue supporting people with Down’s syndrome and their families throughout their lives. Huge thanks to everyone concerned.”
