Purplebricks is in every community across the UK. We have a network of over 600 local property experts who live and work in their local community. Unlike traditional estate agents who tend to be office based, our experts are out in the community every single day – working from home or the local coffee shop, visiting customers, arranging viewings and talking to people about selling their home.
We donated around 40 laptops to five schools. The head teacher of Hillstone Primary School, in Birmingham, who was one of the recipients, told us: “Our school has over 50% of children entitled to free meals and as such many children are finding it difficult to access our virtual school and to participate in remote learning. Your donation will make a huge difference to five children who will now be able to continue their work learning at home.”
While technology can quickly become obsolete for our business needs, we recognise that it still has the potential to do amazing things for many and, looking ahead, we will look to make donating our used tech to charities and good causes our standard practice.
We’re incredibly proud of our continued partnership with Team GB in the run up to the rescheduled Olympic Games in 2021.
While Team GB athletes have played crucial roles in our external advertising campaigns, during the last year many of our employees also benefited from our partnership as the official estate agent of Team GB.
As prizes in our annual Leadership Awards, winners were given exclusive opportunities to receive special remote coaching sessions with Team GB’s sports psychologists and one-to-one sessions with Olympic gold medal winners.
Ellie Sinclair was one of this year’s Leadership Award winners. Her prize included a coaching session with Team GB’s Dr Danielle Adams Norenberg and a chat with Olympic gold medal-winner Helen Richardson-Walsh.
