In September 2001, business partners Nick James and Peter Moginie founded Moginie James and opened the first branch in Albany Road.  Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength and now employs 44 people as the most successful, independent Estate Agency in Cardiff, having sold more properties than any other Cardiff-based agency in the same category.

Martine Harris, Head of Business Development for Moginie James, visited Llamau’s head office to make a donation for the charity’s Christmas appeal, and spoke with Fiona Hawthorn, Corporate and Community Fundraiser for Llamau. Martine said:

Fiona told me about the various ways Llamau supports homeless young people, vulnerable women and their families, and something struck a chord with me. The work Llamau does is incredible. I felt sure that, once I shared this with other members of our senior management team and the Director, they would completely agree with me that Llamau is an organisation we want to support.

Moginie James has chosen Llamau as its Charity of the Year 2019-20. The Independent Estate Agent will donate £5 for every sale or letting completed during the term of the partnership, in addition to a calendar of fundraising activities, kicking off with a ‘Great Office Bake Off’ in May.

Fiona Hawthorn, Corporate and Community Fundraiser for Llamau, said:

Commercial Partnership Agreements are a great way for companies to give back to their local communities, and to show their customers their commitment to supporting their chosen charity.  We are so thrilled to be working with Moginie James, which shares Llamau’s belief that no young person or vulnerable woman should ever have to experience homelessness.  We look forward to working together for the next year to make a real difference to the people Llamau supports.

Martine added

The staff at Moginie James can’t wait to get involved with such a worthwhile charity. It’s a great way for us to get together as a company and have some fun, whilst raising much needed funds for Llamau.
