250 Hour Challenge - Ryde Team

PITTIS PLEDGES 250 HOURS OF CHARITY WORK TO MARK MILESTONE ANNIVERSARY

To commemorate 250 years as a local estate agent for the Isle of Wight, Pittis has announced the launch of a new initiative – the 250-Hour Challenge.

Pittis agents will collectively contribute over 250 hours of service to the Isle of Wight community by the end of the year. Whether through volunteering, participating in marathons, organising fundraisers, or lending a helping hand around the Island, agents are dedicated to making a meaningful difference.

This will include beach cleans across some of the Island’s beaches, volunteering in local shops like Kissy Puppy’s Sophie’s Shop in Newport and hosting charity days within their branches.

Neil Piper, Senior Operations Director at Pittis, says:

“At Pittis, we understand that our responsibility extends beyond homes. For 250 years, we have been deeply rooted in this community, and the people of the Isle of Wight are at the heart of everything we do. The 250-Hour Challenge is our way of reaffirming our commitment to the well-being of our community and continuing the legacy of giving back that has defined us for centuries.”

To get involved in the 250-Hour Challenge, Pittis encourages local organisations and individuals in need of volunteers to reach out to their nearest branch. Agents are eager to lend their support, whether it’s assisting in shops, cafes, or gardening projects.

Did anyone have any money 250 years ago to buy/rent a house ? Sounds suspicious to me…

Pittis is old money, more accustomed to serfdom

250 years ago, no-one could afford to buy/rent a house so what were Pittis doing then? Doesn’t ring true with me…

Why are volunteers from Pittis doing beach cleans? Surely that is a job the council is responsible for?
If hours are being reduced from the official beach clean team, then can I have my council tax reduced accordingly?
