Property search company X-Press Legal Services South and West Yorkshire has donated £1,000 to two local foodbanks.

Supporting conveyancing professionals and the local community, the company has donated to the charities in celebration of 25 years in business.

“We are delighted to have been able to incorporate two local charities in our quarter of a century celebrations,” commented Helen Jugroop who co-owns the firm with her sister Claire Ide. “We are proud to have brought the firm to our region and are repaying the support the community has given us over the years at a time when many locals are struggling with the cost of living. After recent visits to both food banks and witnessing the dedication of their staff, we’ve gained a deeper appreciation of why these charities need financial backing to sustain their vital operations.”

The foodbanks, The Welcome Centre in Huddersfield is the UK’s largest independent foodbank supporting people in crisis while Focus4Hope supports vulnerable residents within Claire’s hometown, Brighouse.

The permanence of the X-Press Legal Services brand locally is testament to the firm’s commitment to building long standing relationships with clients. Its independent local team is committed to exceeding client expectations, becoming a trusted and invaluable property partner to local conveyancers.

“We’ve had a busy year to-date supporting the local conveyancing community,” added Helen. “With summer approaching fast and interest rates looking likely to fall, we’re expecting a high volume of property transactions over the coming months. In 2023 we had a good summer but we expect 2024 to be even better as confidence returns to the market and our clients continue to utilise us as a trusted and responsive local supplier.”
