NEW BUSINESS ON THE BLOCK HOLDS COFFEE MORNING People up and down the country took part in last week`s Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee Morning, the charity`s largest fundraiser for people facing cancer. Arc Estate Agents in Darlington introduced itself to the surrounding community through the popular charity fundraiser, which was held on September 25th 2015. Based in Stanhope Road South, the agency is the latest addition to the well established Arc Group family. After launching in July, they saw the charity event as one way of getting to know locals whilst helping a worthwhile cause. Andrew Chambers, Arc Estate Agents` Managing Director, said: “We have all been touched by cancer in one way or another, but recently we have had a couple of our own members of staff directly affected.” He added: “The importance of giving back to charity is an integral part of our business ethos and this is one way we are helping to support the local community and its causes.”
Arc Estate Agents pride themselves on being ethical, with fixed price fees and lower costs. Their high standards of customer service were evident during the charity event, which saw staff become better acquainted with visiting residents. Members of the community came through the door all event-long, with a homemade piñata cake proving especially popular. The agency had a successful morning, raising £161.84 by selling tea, coffee and cakes, as well as holding a prize raffle. Since Macmillan`s first ever coffee morning back in 1990, over £138 million has been raised for the charity.
