Stef Paterson and Jade Flannigan, Directors of The Property Duo said: 
"We are delighted to be supporting the upcoming Gathimba Edwards Foundation Ladies Lunch, a hugely worthwhile cause that is close to our hearts- empowering women to be the best they can be, whatever their circumstances.
"Combined with our own passion for property, the foundation’s work really struck a chord with us. Learning how GEF are bettering children and families lives in Kenya through their great work in house building, it’s a privilege for us to be supporting the foundation".
