Story

Willowgreen Estate agents are a small independent estate agency with offices in the heart of Malton and Driffield. We as a local team are passionate about people and property and all of us are big believers in giving back to our local community.  After all this is what makes us successful.

We put out a social media post to ask for recommended local charities and the Skatepark hands down had the most votes. They were overjoyed that a local business such as ourselves wanted to get on board to help improve their facilities and equipment for the Children, All the volunteers at the Skatepark including Lucie give up their free time to provide this facility and were keen to work with us to get the ball rolling. 

The Skatepark offers a safe space to escape, for all the children of Driffield and surrounding areas to go and learn new tricks, skills and try something a bit different. Many children with learning difficulties, disabilities, confidence issue and in general wanting to meet new friends, all see the park as an excellent outlet and a place to unwind for those moments. 

Whilst the Skatepark is an absolute asset to Driffield, they could do with a little help to improve the facilities, to be able to provide kit; such as scooters, bikes, helmet's and wood for the ramps to meet the growing demand. 

The girls at Willowgreen (never shy of a challenge) have decided to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks. None of us are athletes, or even walkers, so this 26 mile circular with three mountains along the way, will be a huge personal challenge for all of us. Our training walks have proven, how much work and effort we are all having to put in. We have been trying to fit this in around our full time jobs, social lives and family commitments. It hasn't always been easy, but we all feel so strongly that giving back is a huge part of what we do, we HAVE to do this and wont let the children down!

We would be delighted if  the wider community would help us reach our JustGiving target, to help our cause and add that extra incentive to get over the peaks! Thank you all in advance team WG x
