Harrison Murray helps injured charity-fundraising estate agents.

Harrison Murray estate agents are among those rushing to help industry colleagues – seriously injured during a charity bike ride in the United States – to complete their fundraising target.
The UK estate agency industry has this week been shocked by news of a serious accident that almost claimed the lives of Midlands-based Sean Newman and James Golding during their quest to raise £100,000 for cancer charities.
Now leading independent estate agency, Harrison Murray, with branches stretching from St Albans to Leicestershire and Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire has pledged to donate £1 for every viewing the company arranges in the week commencing Monday 26 July.
The company expects the total to top £1,000.
Disaster struck the 3,500-mile charity ride by Sean and James last Sunday morning as they were attempting to cross 3,000 miles of America when they were hit by a 70mph truck in Louisiana about 45 miles west of New Orleans, some three-quarters of the way into their marathon attempt.
Both men are alive but badly injured. Mr Newman has a broken back, broken pelvis and both his legs are broken. He was rushed into intensive care after the smash but is now understood to be in critical care.
He has already undergone one operation and is believed to be undergoing further surgery now, on his pelvis. More operations will be necessary as surgeons assess the damage to his spine.
Mr Newman is a veteran charity campaigner, having completed several marathons, Iron Man challenges and the infamous Marathon Des Sables.
Mr Golding contracted cancer two years ago when doctors found a large tumour between his spine and his kidney. He originally had just a five per cent chance of survival, but was then given the all-clear almost exactly a year ago.
Harrison Murray’s commercial director, Nick Salmon said: “Our thoughts are with Sean and James and their families and we wish them a speedy recovery from this awful accident.
“During the week of July 26 our staff will be making an extra special effort to encourage buyers to book viewing appointments to see properties and we look forward to making a substantial contribution to the pair’s charities.”
