The COVID-19 pandemic will long be remembered for turning our world upside down and kickstarting dramatic change across all aspects of our everyday lives. It is fair to say no family, community, industry or economy has been left untouched by the pandemic.
Our Communities : 300-bed hospital let to the NHS
Fiera Real Estate and Operating Partner Angle Property donated their Headley Court facility to the NHS to form a temporary 300-bed hospital to help meet the local needs for health care facilities. The creation of the temporary hospital highlights Fiera Real Estate’s desire to support local communities across the UK, and its core principle of delivering back to society by positively impacting the community and being part of something bigger than itself.
Our Charities: Covid-19 Fundraiser for the NHS
The impact of coronavirus on NHS workers has been profound. From a recent survey, nearly half of medics working in intensive care are experiencing symptoms of PTSD, severe depression or anxiety. On 23rd – 25th April, over 180 property professionals took part in the Fiera Real Estate Ekiden Covid-19 Fundraiser to raise money for Duty To Care, a charity that provides virtual therapy sessions to NHS workers in need of support, to enable them to improve and sustain their mental health and wellbeing. Teams of 10 competed in a walking, running and cycling challenge to cover the most distance and raise the most money. The campaign raised over £22,000 for the charity.
