A WARWICKSHIRE estate agency is donating a portion of every deal it closes to Myton Hospice as part of its ongoing support for the palliative care charity.

The partnership came about thanks to Marianne Sharpe who works with Myton Hospice having previously spent 15 years with Loveitts.

And four of the firm's current agents raised a further £1,525 for the organisation when they conquered the Two Castles Run.

Pam Wattam, who is Loveitts' Leamington branch manager, said: 'Every time we have sold a property since May we have donated £100 to Myton Hospice and for each letting where we retain the management we donate £50.

'We are delighted to be helping such a worthy cause and it is something we hope to continue to do for a long time.'

Pam was joined by fellow agents John Pugh, Suzanne Adnitt and Simon Mattock on the annual 10km run from Warwick Castle to Kenilworth Castle.

John Pugh, a partner at the Coventry branch, said 'Myton Hospice is an important charity that does a lot of great work, so we all wanted to do something for them as a company. Marianne's involvement was also key.

'Each branch was represented at the event with Pam from Leamington, Suzanne from Southam and myself and Simon from Coventry.

'We were all novice runners and decided to undertake our own training individually but we all finished the race in between 60 and 70 minutes.'

John added: 'Things got a bit competitive but I think they let me win in the end because I'm a partner.'
