Leaving estate agency business aside- One of the Merrick Binch values is to give back to the local community of Coventry by arranging charity events, donations, and fund raising activities.
This is something very close to the hearts of the directors of Merrick Binch. We believe that a successful business should have a social responsibility to the local area that it operates in. Not just in hand outs, but also in time committed to the communities of Coventry. This blog is to explain about what we do to give back.
Merrick Binch managing director- Trevor Binch is a member of the Coventry Three Spires Round Table. The Round Table is an international organisation for young (ish) men who want to help their communities and develop new skills. Coventry Three Spires Round Table is in its 44th year and has organised the Coventry Fun Run for over 30 of those years. Trevor Binch is the vice chairman of Coventry Three Spires and organised the Coventry Fun Run in 2012 and 2013. Trevor Binch quotes:
‘Organising the Coventry Fun Run is like organising a mini London Marathon. In 2013 it took me a total of 3 months work to organise the event. We were blessed with beautiful weather and over 2500 runners took part, raising over £50,000 for local Coventry charities and organisations. In 2013 we recruited the help of Coventry City FC to help with the promotion of the event.’
Whilst promoting the 2013 Coventry Fun Run, I bumped into Zoe Seville-Edden of the Coventry based charity- Mercia MS Therapy Centre. Zoe told me about all the great work they do supporting the care of local Coventry people suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. I then decided to make the Mercia MS Therapy Centre our official charity for 2014 with a monthly donation of £100 per month.
