Matthew Lester does ‘Agents do Strictly’

Firstly, thank you for all of your support for Matthew’s dancing efforts, we raised an incredible £7,200 for Carers Trust Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk and the Agents Giving Charity. If you missed Mattie doing his great jive, you can watch here. 

Unlike Maxine, who managed to bring home the glitter ball in 2016 Mattie did not win, but came a very commendable second amongst 10 other brilliant competitors. Dancing a jive with his excellent dance teacher Carys, he had everyone quite literally jumping up and down!

Agents Giving are the industry charity for letting agents, estate agents and suppliers to the industry. The organisation raised over £13million last year for good causes, so we are very proud to be able to contribute a little bit toward that with your help.
