Paul Alexander out in force for the St Vincent's Summer Fayre

For the fourth year in a row, Paul Alexander Mortgage Consultants, along with West London estate agents Orchards of London, sponsored St Vincent Primary School's summer fayre.

The local community - and Paul Alexander - turned out in force on Saturday 4th July in support of this super, Acton school. On hand to man our stand and mingle with the great and good of Acton were Shoaib Arshad, Umair Afzal and Ali Aziz, along with team members from Orchards of London.

In true entrepreneurial style, the Paul Alexander, and Orchards of London team devised a fundraising game based around the local property market. The 'Beat the Estate Agent' attraction saw members of the public try and guess the price of a local property located in Birch Grove, W3. To make the game more challenging, participants had to guess the price and then work out the monthly mortgage repayments over 25 years, based on a 75% loan-to-value ratio. On the day, over 80 people took part, paying £1 per guess, with every penny going to the St Vincent school fund. The winner was Mary Stephan, with a guess of 1,800,000 for the house price, and £6,000 for the monthly repayments.

The summer fayre is just one of a number of events Paul Alexander, and Orchards of London has been involved with over the years. Shoaib Arshad from Paul Alexander  adds "While we relish sponsoring and attending St Vincent’s events, we love to use our local community contacts and marketing skills to help the school promote its events. In the case of the summer fayre, we spread the word with dedicated e-shots to our database, paid to place adverts in the fayre's programme of events and paid the school for every one of our promotional boards a parent agreed to have erected in their front garden, which detailed the time, date and location of the fayre. Our support and stall on the day raised almost £8,000 extra for the school's fund."
