The 'Wrights' Community
At the heart of our community
Because Wrights are a local and independent Estate Agents we put ourselves at the heart of our community. We pride ourselves on offering our support to a number of a worthwhile charities and initiatives.
At Wrights we do things differently. We go out of our way to think up new and exciting ways to help our local community and we aim to bring together many businesses in the area too.
We have supported Willow Foundation Website for a number of years now both by providing help with event adverting and by entering events such as the Herts 100 Bike Ride and the Herts 10k. We are proud to have raised over £20,000 last year and this year we have a fundraising target of £50,000.
Willow was founded by former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife Megs. It is a lasting memorial to their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged 31. Anna’s love of life and the enriching experiences of her own Special Days were the charity’s inspiration. For those living with a life threatening illness, every day deserves to be treated as precious.
The pressures of diagnosis, treatment and recovery can have a devastating effect on work and family life. Willow aims to redress the balance: providing unique and unforgettable Special Days tailored to the individuals needs. Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.
Since 1999 Willow has fulfilled more than 14,000 Special Days for young adults living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease.
