Moving in gift from Bakewell agency

Sheffield’s oldest, independent estate agency Eadon, Lockwood and Riddle (ELR) opens a new branch in Bakewell this month .

Established in 1840, ELR has 175 years experience within the property industry.

More recently, the business has seen significant growth following the appointment of new shareholders, leading to the expansion.

As a ‘moving in’ gift to the town, the business is donating £500 to local based charity, Helen’s Trust which supports terminally ill people to stay in their own homes.

ELR is also offering £500 Meadowhall or John Lewis vouchers to clients who complete a sale through the new Bakewell branch in 2013.

ELR’s Managing Director, Chris Thomson said: “Our move into Bakewell is the result of an excellent period of growth for ELR.

“Bakewell has a thriving property market and we’re dedicated to bringing our personal service and expert knowledge to a new region.

“We felt it would be very fitting to offer a donation, to mark our arrival, to Helen’s Trust - a local charity that values the importance of homes as much as we do.”

CEO of Helen’s Trust, 
Heidi Megaughin said: “At Helen’s Trust we work to support a person with a terminal illness who has chosen to remain in the comfort and security of their own home.

“We rely entirely on the generosity of people and organizations… so a big thank you to ELR and welcome to Bakewell!”
