Supporting the local community
DB Roberts are not only passionate about selling your property, but also about helping to raise money and awareness for good causes and charities across the region in which we operate. Over the years DB Roberts have raised thousands of pounds for a variety of charities and good causes and we aim to continue doing so for many more! Take a look at some of our staff raising money at previous charity events.
Our charities 2017
While we support many charities and organisations throughout the year we choose one or two main charities each year. For 2017 we have chosen Breast Cancer Now, Brain Tumour Research, and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Breast Cancer Now is the UK's largest breast cancer charity, dedicated to fundraising research into this devastating disease. This year 50,000 women will hear the words "it's breast cancer" and around 11,500 women will die from it. Breast Cancer Now believes that if we all act now, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.
Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any cancer... yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devasting disease. The Brain Tumour Research mission is to build a network of experts in sustainable brain tumour research.
Macmillan's ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same. Macmillan is made up of millions of supporters, professionals, campaigners and people affected by cancer.
Wear It Pink Day
On Friday 20 October we will wear pink, raise money and make life-saving research happen, for a future where everyone with breast cancer lives.
We will be wearing pink. Will you join us?
Wear A Hat Day
On this special day, staff in all branches and departments donned a hat to help support Brain Tumour Research. Wear A Hat Day 2018 will be held on 29th March. Together we will find a cure.
Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning - 29th September
We supported Macmillan's Coffee Morning this September. Great fun was had by all in eating lots of cake, and waistlines were expanded! The Sales Director is shown sampling cakes in our Telford office. We would like to say a big thank you to all of our customers who came out to support the Coffee Morning this year.
Our Directors headed to Telford Shopping Centre, (the home of our flagship branch) in March to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care. A wonderful charity who offer expert care, guidance and support for people with terminal illnesses and their families. If you would like to read more about Marie Curie or make a donation you can visit their website.
Hilbrae Rescue Centre
We took some of our workers and young volunteers with us to Hilbrae Rescue Centre in Telford to present them with a cheque to help build a new kennel block and while we were there we also took some of their then current residents out for a walk in the sun. Hilbrae do a fantastic job of looking after and rehoming stray and abandoned dogs. Like any charity they are always in need of volunteers to take their dogs for a walk and rely on donations from the public. If you would like to make a donation or are looking to re-home a dog, please visit their website Hilbrae Rescue Centre.
