Foxtons launches Holiday campaign for Veterans Aid


November 22, 2016
Foxtons launches fundraising campaign across its UK stores to increase awareness of Veterans Aid.

London’s leading estate agency, with over 35 years experience in the property market, is helping 84-year old frontline charity Veterans Aid reach ex-servicemen and women in crisis.

Starting from today, and running for seven weeks, Foxtons unique support will include window vinyl spreads across 65 stores and banners across 18. The campaign builds on Foxtons existing relationship with the charity and has already helped transform the lives of four veterans.

foxtons_campaign_veterans-aidNic Budden, Foxtons CEO, commented: “We feel privileged to support the amazing work Veterans Aid does helping veterans in crisis. The charity is a natural partner for Foxtons given their care for London communities and successful track record. We’ve partnered with Veterans Aid over the last year recruiting ex-servicemen and women, and would encourage other companies to do the same. We hope that our Veterans Aid campaign will encourage our customers to give generously this holiday season.”

CEO of Veterans Aid, Dr Hugh Milory said, “We are delighted to have the support of Foxtons during the Christmas period. Albeit in a very different way, we are both committed to finding suitable homes for people and veterans have the same needs as everyone else. What pleases me most however is the fact this is not a seasonal ‘one off’. It is the evolution of a relationship that has already seen the agency commit to finding employment that is so vital to sustaining independent lifestyles and that is something all Londoners can relate to.”

Veterans Aid is the UK’s leading frontline charity for ex-servicemen and women in crisis.

Established in 1932, as a direct response to the homelessness caused by poverty and un­employment among London’s ex-service community, it has been delivering immediate support to those most in need ever since. In 2015 VA’s unique Welfare to Wellbeing© pathway was commended by The Centre for Social Justice as a model to others in the sector.

The charity’s swift, practical interventions prevent many ex-servicemen and women ever becoming homeless or slipping into crisis. Its services are as diverse as its clients and its commitment is twofold: Provision of practical interventions and long-term, sustainable solutions to the societal problems that impact on veterans lives.

Operating from two locations – a central London HQ and a hostel – VA’s reach and impact is global. In 2015 the charity provided 22,000 nights of accommodation and dealt with 65 nationalities.
