World Cup Dream is Over – But What a Ride!

Elizabeth Davenport attended Kenilworth School’s career’s fair at Castle Sixth Form last Tuesday. World Cup fever was in the air and the team at Elizabeth Davenport decided to have a bit of fun and run a World Cup competition for the students. The prize at stake was a brand-new England home shirt, all the students had to do was answer one simple  question…IMG_4622

The question was; how many properties were currently available to buy in Kenilworth?

More than 30 students took part with guesses ranging from 105 to 4,438!

The winning guess was made by lucky student Louis Perry who guessed 178 which was only 8 properties away from the actual figure of 186!*

Nick Luntley, a Director & Branch Manager at Elizabeth Davenport, who was also a former pupil of Kenilworth School said “we were delighted to meet so many keen and enthusiastic students and only hope we were able to offer some genuine insight into how small business and the property industry works. It was a slightly surreal experience for me as the last time I was in this hall I was sitting my final A-level exam nearly 14 years ago! The England shirt competition was just a bit of fun that hopefully gave students a small incentive to come and speak with us!”

“It’s a shame the football didn’t quite work out how we all wanted but I’m sure Louis will still be wearing his new shirt with pride. I’d also like to extend a special thank you to Marie Brennan at Kenilworth School who organised a fantastic day for all the students”.

Elizabeth Davenport regularly support students and school leavers by offering work experience places throughout the year. If this is something that would be of interest please email either Nick (nick@elizabethdavenport.co.uk) or Mark (mark@elizabethdavenport.co.uk).

London Marathon 2018!

IMG_2995Elizabeth Davenport Director Nick Luntley is running the London Marathon later this year in order to raise money for the very well known national charity Scope. Nick who is a keen runner has never ran a marathon before but is looking forward to the challenge of distance runnings greatest test!

Nick who runs for Massey Furgusson Running Club, is looking to raise £2,000 and his efforts were given a massive boost with the very generous donation made by Band Hatton Button Solicitors who have put forward £1,000.

Nick Button who is a partner at Band Hatton Button said “we are absolutely delighted to support Nick in his marathon effort for such a worthy charity in Scope. All I can say to Nick in regard to the marathon itself is, rather you than me!” Nick who works out of both the Kenilworth and Coventry branches at Elizabeth Davenport said “I’m absolutely delighted with the support shown from Band Hatton Button when I approached them for some support I was absolutely delighted they said yes without a moments hesitation. Scope is a fantastic charity that I’m proud to support. I know once this is all over I will be able to look back with great pride about the amount of money raised and the lives we will have been able to improve.”

The annual capital marathon event is ran from Greenwich in south London and finishes in on The Mall right outside Buckingham Palace. This year there is a fantastic field of elite athletes including the famous Kenyan athlete Eliud Kipchoge and Great Britain’s Olympic hero Sir Mo Farah.

The London Marathon is on Sunday 22nd April and there is still time to support Nick by making a donation to his just giving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nick-luntley
