Moore Allen and Innocent raise an incredible £20,000 for GYC as their charity partner

We have been fantastically supported by the team at Moore Allen and Innocent for 2 years. Despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic they have been incredible in their unwavering support and efforts to fundraise for us and help us with volunteering, our young carers newsletter and sponsoring a Day at the Lakes for adult young carers this summer. We want to say a massive thank you to all the team for everything they have done for us especially during such difficult times.

Partner at the firm Roy Bowyer said “Moore Allen & Innocent are chartered surveyors and estate agents based in the Cotswold and recently celebrated 175 years serving the community.  Each year they adopt a charity that is local to whom they can work alongside and support both with time and funding.

In December 2019 the firm were pleased to support Gloucestershire Young Carers for 2020.  The year commenced with many grand plans, assistance with the tea and cake stall at the snowdrops event, a robust 175-kilometre ‘conference cycle’ and many others.  Sadly, the pandemic put a stop to many of the planned events and as such we were pleased to extend our support to GYC for another year.  Despite the restricting year, we were fortunate however to make a sizeable financial contribution and assist in the newsletter expenditure. 

With the relaxing of covid, this year has seen considerably more activities to include the ‘big breakfast’, ‘bake-off’, 175 KM sporting weekend that included cycling, swimming, walking, canoeing, horse riding and two 5k runs. More recently we have conducted a successful ‘pop-up’ shop for nearly new clothes and are shortly to mount a race night being held within a local pub.

The whole firm have embraced the charity and have enjoyed a variety of events.  We are keen to ensure that we can this year find £20,000 towards this worthwhile cause.”
