A home with a heart; Sellmyhome.co.uk pledges to support top Veterans charity, Veterans Aid
Sellmyhome.co.uk, a nationwide online Estate Agency developed solely with consumers in mind, has recently launched in the UK. Founded by ex Knight Frank agent, Will Clark, and experienced advertising strategic planner, Henry Nash, Sellmyhome.co.uk have pledged to donate £5 of every instruction to Veterans Aid. The charity, which has been helping veterans in crisis since 1932, deals with ex-servicemen and women who are homeless, facing homelessness, or dealing with significant life crises. It helps many of those who have spent time in its East London hostel move on and settle into new homes.
Will Clark, Director of Sellmyhome.co.uk says: “With friends and family in the armed forces Veterans Aid is a charity close to us all at Sellmyhome.co.uk. Having experienced the work they do first hand, we are delighted to be able to donate £5 of every instruction to help the Veterans start an exciting and successful new chapter. ”
As the first online sales agent to directly donate money from each new instruction, Sellmyhome.co.uk is spearheading a new wave of Corporate Social Responsibility in the online property industry. Over the course of the next year the Sellmyhome.co.uk team will also be challenging themselves to raise further funds for Veterans Aid by organizing charity events and sporting challenges. So when you sell your home privately with us then you can be sure that you're dealing with a company based on sound values.
CEO of Veterans Aid Dr Hugh Milroy says: “We’re thrilled to have support from a business in the estate agency world. Creating safe, comfortable and sustainable homes is central to what we do at Veterans Aid. With the costs of moving home skyrocketing, the money donated from every Sellmyhome.co.uk instruction will be very gratefully received and will help to set our Veterans on a positive path. The nature of our work has not changed for 82 years; we are the Accident and Emergency unit of the Veterans world and those who come to us are in crisis. The variety of support we offer is limited only by imagination and funds.”

Veterans Aid is the major charity for UK veterans in crisis. It was born in 1932, in the aftermath of the First World War, when the legacy of that conflict left many former servicemen unemployed, homeless and destitute. The compassion and immediate, practical aid it offered then has been its hallmark ever since. Last year it received around 3,000 calls for help, provided more than 20,000 nights of accommodation and put an average of four people a month through successful detox.
