Community - Giving Back

First Step Community team

First Step’s culture and values go beyond operating a market-leading estate agency to embrace a wider sense of our place in the community. We believe that one of this area’s main attractions is its sense of community. We are committed to giving back to those around us by supporting worthy causes.

Giving Back to our community is a huge part of our ethos  

– It’s the right thing to do.

You will find David or myself at most events, if not, some of our team will always be there to represent us. We enjoy giving back as much as taking part and so far, we have donated over £65,000 to local projects. If it’s possible to help and it will benefit our local area, then we will always do what we can to help.


Go Karting with James Morley

Proudly Sponsored by First Step

James is a very talented young driver who is competing in the British Kart Championships.

As expected, James has done very well upon his return in 2023.

In No.1 position of course!

We will continue to closely follow his progress.


Stotfold Junior U13 (Sun) Amber Junior Football Team

Proudly Sponsored by First Step

2023 Update Congratulations to the entire team for becoming *Winner of the Best Grassroots Football Club in Bedfordshire 2023*!!


 Barrie West (Manager) – 1 March 2022
“Thanks once again for your continued support, The team couldn’t
run as well at all without the considerable amount you give us for the
match day kits.
First Step are very involved in our community
and it’s great that they sponsor our boys. They are a trusted Number 1
Agent, that’s the aim for our boys too.”


Some words from Jules & David, First Step:

“Another year sponsoring the Stotfold Under 13’s, we have great pride to watch the lad’s skill and talent grow and improve in each game they play, we will continue (when possible) to be on the side-lines cheering the team on.

The Stotfold Football Club Directors spoke with us after seeing our high profile marketing within the local community along with support we continue to give the under 13’s Stotfold Team.”


Events/Sponsorship in Stotfold

We are firm supporters of local events and organisations in and around Stotfold, including the Under 11 Football Team, the yearly 5k challenge, as well as regular events at Etonbury School.

First Step’s annual visit and donation of £500 to The Need Project

Jules and Jane from the office met Gordon, Caroline, and Keith earlier this week, and spoke to many of the volunteers to find out how much hard work goes into making up the Christmas food parcels. The lead-up to Christmas is The Need Project’s busiest time of year. Christmas is traditionally the time of giving but The Need Project truly goes above and beyond this sentiment.
