London Building Control is delighted to support the work of the Property Sports Network in 2020.
Over the course of the year to date LBC has worked with the Network to create a series of events aimed at getting the sector active and united in promoting health and well-ness.
Key events at the start of 2020 included a series of physical networking runs and walks and when lockdown came the support of LBC allowed the Network to run over 47 online events in 4 months which included Pilates, High Intensity Interval Training and Yoga classes before work to keep the sector fit and active and entertained at a time when maintaining good mental and physical health was of the upmost importance . Attendees from across the property sector joined in the online sessions, from Southampton to Glasgow and Norwich to Cardiff.
As lock down restrictions are easing LBC is supporting a nationwide series of Netwalking events. Netwalking is all about getting outside, having a stroll and meeting new people from the local property and construction sector. Netwalks are taking place in serval towns and cities around the country with more locations announced each month. All proceeds from ticket sales for netwalks is donated to LandAid. Each year LandAid give around £2m in grants to charities right across the country. This funds mainly capital projects to renovate existing or create new safe, secure and affordable accommodation for young homeless people.
The Property Sports Network’s aim is to promote fitness and well-being in the property sector by organising networking events with a sporting or wellness theme.
