Jones Lang LaSalle raises over £500,000 for its sponsored charities

Working across two year partnerships  with Macmillan Cancer Support, Help the Hospices and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity


London, 17th December, 2012 – Jones Lang LaSalle has raised in excess of £500,000 for its two year charitable partnerships with Macmillan Cancer Care, Help the Hospices and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

Richard Batten, UK Executive Chairman and CSR leader at Jones Lang LaSalle, said: “We are delighted that our fundraising efforts have managed to raise over £500,000 for such wonderful causes over the past two years. Our total figure for Macmillan was confirmed at £265,358 while we raised £210,413 for Help the Hospices. Currently, our fundraising for Great Ormond Street stands at £38,500 with more fundraising initiatives in the pipeline. Our regional offices have also been raising significant sums for their own local charities.”
 
Over the past two years, Jones Lang LaSalle has participated in a huge range of fund raising events to draw in donations for its partnered charities. These events have included the Jones Lang LaSalle annual Property Triathlon and Regents Park 5k Run as well as the Jones Lang LaSalle Cycle Sportive. Other events have also included marathons, an English Channel swim, quiz nights and cake sales.
 
As a way of making further contributions towards Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, Jones Lang LaSalle has decided to do things a little differently this Christmas by developing a special Jones Lang LaSalle recipe book where all proceeds will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. 
 
Richard Batten, added: “We are really pleased with the success of this idea. We have printed 2,000 copies which include some of our staff members and sponsored Olympians best loved dishes. So far we have received over 800 advance orders – if we manage to sell every book we will raise another £20,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. As well as this, four of our staff members will be volunteering at one of the Great Ormond Street Hospital Christmas parties on Monday 17th December.”​
