As parents of a severely disabled daughter, Richard and Annie have received a lot of help and support from local charities such as Stick ‘n Step and Claire House over the last few years. When they established Somerville’s Estate Agents, they decided they wanted to give something back to the local community. With this in mind, for every property sold, Somerville’s Estate Agents will donate £25 to one of the listed charities below. As seller you can choose which charity the funds will go to support.
