Zoopla employees strike gold for charity

Here at Zoopla, we’re a competitive bunch, winning a host of accolades for running Britain’s leading property website.

And this week we applied our winning ways to making money for charity at our latest get together at the West Bromwich Albion football ground.

Zoopla is enjoying its second year sponsoring the Birmingham-based football club. During every match, we run a competition for ticket holders to win cash prizes if they successfully kick a ball through the door of a cardboard cut-out of a detached house. The kicks are taken at half time, in front of thousands of fans.

The same competition was run at the staff gathering on Wednesday – albeit on a smaller scale, in front of all of our 200 high-achieving individuals. But instead of taking the cash for ourselves, we donated it to charity. A goal was rewarded with £50 cash, producing a total of £700.

We’re delighted to be supporting the Albion Foundation and a host of other local charities. The Albion Foundation does outstanding work in the local community as do the other charities we’ve chosen to support – and we recognise that these charities rely heavily on donations from businesses like ours.

Dream start to Zoopla sponsorship of West Brom

The sponsorship of Premiership club West Bromwich Albion by Zoopla.co.uk kicked off in spectacular fashion on Saturday when ‘the Baggies’ comprehensively defeated Liverpool at their Hawthorns stadium by three goals to nil.

A near capacity crowd of 26,000 watched Steve Clarke’s team get their season off to an ideal start as Zoltan Gera, Peter Odemwingie and Romelu Lukaku scored while wearing this season’s new Zoopla-emblazoned strip and surrounded by Zoopla’s distinctive purple hoardings.

The sponsorship deal, which runs until at least the 2014/15 season, also includes Zoopla logos on official club merchandise, across its website, on match tickets and programmes and of course on interview backdrops for post-match TV interviews.

But as well as being the principal sponsor of the club, much more was on offer during the Liverpool game.

At half time three Baggies fans kicked for a chance to win either £1,000 or a house if they could place a ball through one of three openings in the Zoopla Halftime House while former team player and now youth coach Darren Moore (pictured, below) also had a go. To register to have a go in this challenge at each home game, visit the Zoopla Halftime House Challenge page.

Also, Zoopla announced it is supporting the Albion Foundation, a charitable trust set up to work with West Bromwich Albion to help regenerate the local community through sporting, educational and health initiatives and activities.

Zoopla has pledged £50,000 to the foundation over the next two years as well as additional donations each game depending on the team’s performance via Zoopla Golden Goals.

This was launched at the Liverpool game too. Every time the team scores at home or away Zoopla will donate and additional £1,000 split half with the foundation and half with five key local charities. For starters, on Saturday, £3,000 was raised when the team scored its clutch of goals.
