A North East property firm has fundraised and donated over £21,000 to three local charities following its fourth successful fundraising event.
Bradley Hall Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents held its fourth annual fundraiser in aid of North East causes including Marie Curie Newcastle Hospice, Heel and Toe Children’s Charity and Bright Red at the event.
Since launching its annual Festive Fundraiser, Bradley Hall has fundraised and donated over £64,000 to local causes which, in addition to its chosen charities this year, has included Daft As A Brush, British Heart Foundation and St Oswald’s Hospice.
Neil Hart, Group Managing Director at Bradley Hall, said: “We would like to thank everyone who attended and donated to the cause at our fundraising afternoon. The generosity of our guests will undoubtedly have a huge impact on the lives of the many people who rely on the organisations which we havchosen to support. Each year the event gets bigger and better and we are delighted to continue to grow our fundraising total.
“As a North East business, we are passionate about supporting our communities and local causes. We firmly believe that part of our responsibility as a regional organisation is to ensure that local people are given opportunities regardless of their circumstances.”
The Marie Curie Newcastle hospice cares for and supports around 1,000 people with a terminal illness, and their families, a year. Donations and fundraising help to fund 24-hour care for those staying at the hospice, as well as around 20 visitors a day who attend clinics and support sessions.
Bright Red helps patients who are dealing with a wide range of blood cancers. The more common diseases are leukaemia’s, lymphomas, and myelomas. The charity also helps support patients suffering from myelodysplasia and myeloproliferative diseases.
Heel and Toe Children’s Charity currently provides 12,000 hours of free therapy including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language, conductive education and special educational needs tutoring.
Bradley Hall Group Director, Peter Bartley, who is a Trustee for Heel and Toe, said: “Heel and Toe is an independent local charity which completely relies on donations to provide much needed therapy for children with disabilities. The charity receives no government funding and needs over £500,000 each year to provide the vital services, so we are delighted to have supported them, alongside Bright Red and Marie Curie, again this year.”
