Connells Survey & Valuation donates £10,000 to LionHeart
Connells Survey and Valuation has donated £10,000 to LionHeart as part of its ongoing partnership with the surveying industry's health and wellbeing charity.

LionHeart is the only benevolent fund established to specifically support the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) members and their families.

The charity’s aim is “to be there for members whenever life throws them a curve ball, from the very beginning of their career as an Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) candidate or apprentice, right through to retirement.”

LionHeart has upcoming webinars and events in May and June that focus on a variety of topics like bereavement, anxiety and change, mental health awareness, gardening, suicide, resilience, cancer, presentation skills, mindfulness and meditation, caring for the elderly, and interview coaching.

In 2021, the charity delivered a range of webinars and workshops to Connells staff, with focuses including physical activity for wellbeing, effective lone working, and mental health in the workplace.

Ross Bowen, managing director of Connells Survey and Valuation, said: “We are very proud to continue our fantastic partnership with LionHeart. Surveying involves much lone working, so it’s great for our colleagues to understand and benefit from the support LionHeart provides.

“I’d like to thank everyone involved with organising and delivering the webinars and workshops to our colleagues, and we look forward to another productive year of working with LionHeart.”

Davina Goodchild, CEO of LionHeart, said: “We are very grateful to Connells for its support. As the only charity that specifically supports the RICS community, we’re always very grateful when firms in the industry choose to make donations to us. We’re proud to count Connells as one of our corporate partners and look forward to continuing our work with them in future to support their wellbeing objectives and help them provide a happy, healthy and supportive environment in which their employees thrive.”

LionHeart is an independent charity for RICS professionals, past and present, and their surrounding families. Their aim is to be there for members from the very beginning of their career right through to retirement. The support they provide aims to get RICS members through any of life’s challenges, ranging from financial support, to health and wellbeing, and access to legal advice. Their support extends to past and present RICS members, and their partners and dependants.
