More than 55 property companies and 1,500 people across the UK came together yesterday for a giant fundraising effort supporting projects to help disadvantaged young people.

Donations are still being counted but LandAid says it has already exceeded last year’s total of £75,000.

This year, the LandAid Day theme was “All the Fun of the Fair”.

The property industry got involved in fundraising through doing various challenges across the UK, the City of London and West End, passing through some of London’s most famous landmarks.

There were cycling challenges including a pedi-bus relay from the West End to the City of London by GVA, a body zorb football tournament in King’s Cross hosted by Argent, hundreds of property industry workers in circus and fairground fancy dress, fairground games and bake-offs in some of the top property industry company offices.

The Challenge

The BT Sport Relief Challenge: Flintoff’s Record Breakers sees Freddie Flintoff attempting to break or set 12 Guinness World Records in just 12 hours to raise cash for Sport Relief. He may be one of the greatest all-rounders ever, but he’ll have to be on top of his game to deliver on this one.

Zorbing Hire UK were proud to provide the Zorb balls for the challenge of fastest 100m in a Zorb Ball.
Sadly Freddie failed to beat the current record of 30s.
