Belleveue Mortlakes has been raising funds for CHICKS, a fantastic national children’s charity that provides 8-15 year olds with FREE respite breaks at retreats in Devon and Cornwall so that they can swim in the sea, visit the countryside, ride a horse and run around in green wide open spaces; often for the first time in their lives.
Whilst there the children can let off steam, make new friends, build their confidence and ultimately build some positive childhood memories.
The breaks offered by CHICKS are just the beginning and the effects last a lifetime. Each year CHICKS needs to raise £1. 3 million and it receives no government funding. Whilst children are
currently being pushed further into poverty, we are trying to provide many more disadvantaged children with the chance to benefit from some positive time away.
Here are some of the events in aid of the Charity that we are organising / have organised recently, raising much needed funds for CHICKS, as well as National events that we are participating in for other charities:
Over 140 Auctioneers, Agents, Property Financiers and representatives from Parliament came together to raise awareness of and funds for the North London Hospice. On behalf of everyone at Belleveue Mortlakes may I express my very sincere appreciation and gratitude to all those who attended and a special thank you to all our speakers, including our guest speaker, David Sandeman from EIG Auctions. We are most thankful for your support of this great cause.

Palace to Palace is a cycle ride from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle. This year was the 10th Anniversary ride, and was an incredible occasion. Michael Yianni (Managing Director) and several colleagues completed the 45 mile route, helping to raise vital funds for The Prince’s Trust, whose programmes assist vulnerable and underprivileged young people.
Firstly, a big thank you to the following for making the day such a success: Barlow Robbins, Howard Kennedy, HSBC, MT Finance, Brecher, Chestertons and Shawbrook. What a fantastic day riding through the Great Windsor Park, with stunning views overlooking Windsor Castle and the surrounding countryside and superb sunny weather to top it all off. The riders came from all levels of experience, from those who had never ridden before to those who compete at a national level. Whatever our experience we all had a great day out, and many of us needed a few days to recover from the achy legs!
