The company, which runs education facilities for the property and business industry from a base at Cygnet Park, has scrapped its fees and allowed anyone to join online classes. 

As a result, they asked that people would donate some money toward their fundraising page, which is currently at £10,000. 

Their goal is to hit £20,000 in funds raised for the NHS, with one of their co-founders, Rob Moore, who runs his own charity, pledging to match the funds raised. 

A spokesperson for Progressive Property said: "This isn't our first time raising money for charity, we do quite a lot for the local community, but this is very important to us. 

"I know our co-founder, Mark Homer, feels personally indebted to the NHS after so many family members recovered from coronavirus. 

"So many people have been affected in some kind of way, and to help the NHS is so important. No matter what stage you are in life, they are there. You never truly understand that until you have to use it."

They added: "Most of our funds have been raised from our free classes, but we have since tried to keep up the momentum to raise more money. We know not everyone can donate at this time, so it was not essential. 

"It's unbelievable the start we have got on it, to have received £10,000 in donations from the public. We want to keep going and keep trying." 

The company has been running for 13 years and teach thousands about what they do year on year.
