At the third SIOR International European Conference, fundraising to support Ukraine played a central role. Thanks to the efforts of SIOR members and conference attendees, circa €40,000 has already been raised.
A 245 km cycle ride from Dublin to Kilkenny and back over two days has raised over €35,000 and counting (including pledges) and a SIOR Europe “Ryder Cup” event raised another €4,700.
50% of the full amount is being donated to the Ukraine Appeal to help those affected by the war and 50% to the SIOR Foundation which nurtures the next generation of leaders in real estate, providing educational programmes and mentoring support. The money will go towards supporting young people from the Ukraine interested in a career in the property sector.
Paul Danks, SIOR FRICS President of the European Regional Chapter of SIOR, said: “Using our conference, we were able to provide a great week of networking opportunities which also raised money to help Ukraine at this difficult time. We are delighted with the amount raised and thank everyone involved for their efforts.”
