Property firm raise £300,000 for local charities

Full-service property specialists Bradley Hall has raised and donated £300,000 for local charities including: Marie Curie Newcastle’s Hospice, Heel & Toe Children’s Charity, and NE Youth.

The firm has raised and donated £300,000 to local charities, community action projects, and grassroot sports clubs while supporting over 30 different regional charities and sporting groups including Daft as a Brush, Bright Red, Morpeth Rugby Club, ABF The Soldier’s Charity, Glendale Agricultural Society, as well as local food and toy banks across the region.

Bradley Hall hosted its first festive fundraiser in 2016 where the firm raised £2,400 for local charities. Since then, the business’ annual festive fundraisers have contributed to the company’s overall charitable total, having raised £75,000 at last year’s 700-guest BH Festive Fundraiser Bingo Bonanza, held at The Fed, Gateshead.

Neil Hart, Bradley Hall’s group CEO said: “I would like to thank everyone that has attended and donated at each of our events to help us raise and donate £300,000 so far to local charities. We’re looking forward to continuing our support of deserving local organisations, charities, and our communities across the North.  Our vision is to work together with key organisations and people to make the North a consistently better place to live, work, and socialise- which is at the heart of our community efforts.

“As a company that was founded in the North East, we are very proud to be able to support the charities and their service users who need it most. Most of the charities and community organisation which we work with aren’t supported by Government and rely solely on donations and fundraising activity, so it’s very important for us to do all we can to ensure their services continue.”

Kelly Knighting-Wykes, head of fundraising North England for Marie Curie said: “Our Marie Curie Hospice Newcastle and North East Nursing Teams care for and support hundreds of people with a terminal illness and their families each year. All of our services are free to patients and their families, and we rely on donations and gifts such as this from Bradley Hall to make this possible.

“We have been lucky enough to have received generous donations from Bradley Hall since its first fundraiser in 2016, and it is something we are incredibly grateful for.”

Douglas Long, chief executive of Heel & Toe Children’s Charity said: “Heel & Toe receives no government funding and needs over £1 million each year to provide the vital therapy services so over 200 children across our region each week. We are very grateful for all of the large donations we have received over the years – we cannot thank Peter and the team at Bradley Hall enough.”

Jon Niblo, chief executive of NE Youth, leading North East youth development charity, said: “Thanks to the generous donations and fundraising efforts of Bradley Hall we have been able to continue to provide a high quality, diverse, and positive youth offer in the North East through our own services to help young people across the region. Thank you, Bradley Hall.”
