Ella’s, a London Based Charity Organisation that provides care and support to women who have survived trafficking, has been awarded a grant of £2000 through the Conveyancing Foundation’s Charity Grant Scheme. The commendation came as a result of the nomination by Women In Residential Property (WIRP), a group which aims to improve collaboration and knowledge sharing across the residential property industry through hosting online and offline events. 

The Conveyancing Foundation is a zero-profit registered charity whose purpose is to enhance the lives of those in the conveyancing industry and to support charity fundraising initiatives in the property industry. The Foundation’s innovative Charity Grant Scheme was created to provide individuals in the property industry with an opportunity to secure grant funding of up to £2,000 for their chosen charitable endeavours.

The Foundation has raised almost £1 million for charity since its launch in 2010, which has helped to support deserving causes and charities of all sizes, including Cancer Research UK, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice and Many Tears Animal Rescue, to name just a few. 

Emma Vigus from Women in Residential Property, who nominated Ella’s for the grant, was delighted to receive the news from the Conveyancing Foundation, commending its innovative scheme for setting high standards of charitable work across the property industry.

Emma said: “We have supported Ella’s since 2018 when they were establishing their first safe house. They provide lifesaving support to women who have endured horrific abuse and have nowhere else to turn. They are a small charity run by a wonderful group of people with very big hearts and, it’s been a privilege to witness the charity’s growth and to play a role in supporting them.  Many of our members are personally invested in Ella’s and will be delighted with this generous award from the Conveyancing Foundation. Thank you so much.”

WIRP has raised money for Ella’s through organising dedicated fundraising events and, by donating a share of the proceeds from ticket sales to WIRP events.  On the afternoon of 6 July, WIRP will be hosting an exclusive screening of the film Erin Brockovich at the luxurious Electric Cinema at Soho House, White City.  Tickets cost £40 and are available via www.womeninresidentialproperty.co.uk

Conveyancing Foundation Chairman Lloyd Davies commented, “We are delighted to support Women in Residential Property with a Conveyancing Foundation Grant. Their dedication in raising funds for Ella’s over the past five years is nothing short of extraordinary.”
