Es­tate agent makes ‘amaz­ing’ gift to trust

Macclesfield Express - - HOMES -

JOR­DAN Fishwick, one of the north west’s lead­ing in­de­pen­dent agents, has been rais­ing funds for the Rossendale Trust.

The Rossendale Trust pro­vides sup­ported liv­ing care to adults with learn­ing and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties, in pur­pose­built apart­ments across the re­gion.

Money raised has been help­ing go to­wards fund­ing a new scheme the trust is im­ple­ment­ing named Work­taste; to pro­vide sup­port to peo­ple with learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties who are en­ter­ing the work­place, and to help the em­ployer and em­ployee get value out of the roles that em­ploy­ers pro­vide.

This helps the in­di­vid­ual to learn about work dis­ci­pline and build con­fi­dence in their abil­i­ties.

Martin Mos­ton, part­ner at the Jor­dan Fishwick Manch­ester of­fice, was de­lighted to present the cheque for more than £6,000.

He said: “We were hop­ing to raise £20,000 for The Rossendale Trust, to help with all the dif­fer­ent projects it has, the £6,000 do­na­tion is only the be­gin­ning.

“With plans on the hori­zon to open two more Jor­dan Fishwick of­fices by next year, one in Withing­ton and one in Dis­ley, we are hop­ing to smash the £20,000 tar­get and raise even more money for this wor­thy char­ity.”

The cheque was pre­sented to the trust’s head of fundrais­ing, Sue Heaven, along with Katie Tam­blyn, and Steve Ni­cholls, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer at The Rossendale Trust.

Sue said: “Many thanks go to Jor­dan Fishwick for this do­na­tion. We re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port. We have never had any­thing do­nated on this scale be­fore, it re­ally is amaz­ing.”

Se­nior part­ner at Jor­dan Fishwick, Martin Fishwick added: “We are de­lighted that we have been able to do­nate to such a worth­while scheme, which has seen the trust work with many large busi­nesses in the lo­cal area.”
