KFH reaches £400,000 milestone for London Youth

Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward (KFH), one of London’s largest independent property services groups, is proud to announce that they have raised £400,000 for their charity partner, London Youth, supporting young Londoners to become the best they can be.

Since the partnership began in 2017, KFH has raised awareness and fundraised through a variety of initiatives across its network of more than 60 branches throughout the Capital.

Activities and fundraising events by KFH staff have included caving in Yorkshire, marathons, scaling the three peaks, sports days, under water walks, bike rides, obstacle courses, golf days and abseils, to name just a few. Staff have also volunteered their time to help London Youth and its members, redecorating clubs, providing career insights, adjudicating panels, and assisting at sporting events.

KFH also donates £1 to London Youth for every residential sales and lettings valuation conducted. The funds raised are unrestricted, giving London Youth the opportunity to ensure that they can support a wide range of programmes and services that empower young people to reach their full potential.

The fundraising and volunteering efforts at KFH have become embedded in our culture and they empower us to make a tangible difference to the lives of London's youth. KFH remains committed to changing the lives of young Londoners through this incredibly special partnership."
