X1 Lettings – Charity Support
We have always wanted to give back to charity. While we will endeavour to raise more money for local charities, there are a few which will always be close to our hearts.
Over the past 5 years, we have watched two of our team members undergo six months of chemotherapy each for Hodgkins Lymphoma.
We were delighted to watch Eve celebrate her first year all clear in 2014 and Chris celebrate the all clear in 2015!
Having completed the journey not once but twice, X1 are passionate in raising as much awareness and money as possible to contribute towards the valiant efforts in finding a cure for this cancer.
Over the past 2 years homelessness has and still is growing alarmingly. Working within the property sector, the increase of homelessness really strikes a chord with us at X1. Therefore some of our team members got in contact with Mustard Tree to find an opportunity for colleagues inside of X1 and in their spare time to help this amazing charity and the people in need.
Since then, some of our team members volunteer at the shelter after work and on weekends to provide an extra pair of hands to help. The Mustard Tree is a fantastic charity which not only helps provide and find accommodation but also helps people get back on their feet through volunteer programs and find work placements to those who wish for employment.
Cancer affects us all & sadly it has affected some of our team members and their families over the years. Therefore there is a strong passion to continue to raise awareness and money for this fantastic charity to help support everyone who comes face to face with cancer and their families.
Here are a few of our favourite fundraisers from over the years
The Dragon Boat Race across the River Dee
X1’s annual Dragon Boat race see our teams go head to head on the River Dee!
Gung Ho 5K Obstacle Race
Our team took part in a charity obstacle race at Heaton Park. It’s far to say we got very messy!
Abseil from Liverpool Cathedral
Our Liverpool branch took part in a charity abseil down Liverpool’s Cathedral. Take a look at our daredevil’s here!
Another batch of X1 daredevils volunteered to take part in a charity skydive in 2019! They smashed their £2,000 target and we couldn’t be more proud. Check out our Just Giving page here.

We weren’t going to let lockdown get in the way of our fundraising. The team took part in our own social media challenge, nominating each other to share photos from lockdown walks will raising money for Manchester and Liverpool Cares. Find out more about this amazing charity here.
We would like to thank our fantastic X1 teams for their support and eagerness to take part in these events (some for the brave hearted only!)
Secondly, we would like to thank all of the generous clients who we work so closely with day to day for their donations and support.
