Bradley Hall raises seventy five thousand pounds for charity at annual festive fundraiser

Northern full-service property firm, Bradley Hall has raised seventy five thousand pounds for three local charities at its annual fundraiser.

Bradley Hall held its sixth annual fundraising event, aptly named the BH Festive Fundraiser Bingo Bonanza at The Fed, Gateshead, in aid of three worthy local charities; Marie Curie Newcastle’s Hospice, Heel & Toe Children’s Charity, and NE Youth.

Since the launch of its annual fundraiser, Bradley Hall has raised and donated almost £300,000 to local charities, community action projects and grassroot sports clubs. The firm has contributed to helping over 30 different regional charities and sporting groups including NE Youth, Marie Curie Newcastle’s Hospice, Heel & Toe Children’s Charity, Morpeth Rugby Club, ABF The Soldier’s Charity, Glendale Agricultural Society, as well as local food and toy banks across the region.

Neil Hart, Bradley Hall’s group CEO said: “This year’s festive fundraiser has been our biggest fundraising success yet and I am incredibly proud that we have been able to make a positive impact to local causes. Thank you to the 700 people who attended the event, purchased tables, donated and took part in our auctions.

“I would also like to say a huge thank you to our sponsors for the event; The Inn Collection Group, Smart Vision Screens, Smart Outdoor, Strata and Portfolio North. Their support further added to the donations to Marie Curie’s Newcastle Hospice, Heel and Toe Children’s Charity and NE Youth and will make a huge difference to service users and their families.

“As a firm we aim to support local economy, business, and communities with a full service approach to residential and commercial property. 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.”

Cassie Moyse, group marketing director at Bradley Hall said: “Hosting 700 people, in much larger space than we ever have before with Bingo Loco for entertainment, was a very different type of fundraiser – but it was a gamble that paid off and will benefit three fantastic local charities as a result. The feedback has been incredible and I was delighted that all of our attendees had such a fantastic day – we’ve already had enquiries on when they can book next year.

“Our last fundraiser raised £50,000 for two fantastic regional charities and was attended by 400 people but being able to raise £75,000 and nearly doubling our attendance in just over a year is something we are all very proud of. Given the current economic climate and challenges we were very appreciative of everyone’s support and generosity. Charities have struggled over the past few years, so these donations will be more needed than ever.

“I would like to thank everyone that donated a raffle, silent auction and live auction prizes, your donations significantly helped us raise our final total and we are incredibly grateful. Similarly, having such amazing corporate sponsorships from firms such as The Inn Collection Group, Smart Outdoor, Smart Vision Screens, Portfolio North, and Strata also contributed greatly to our final total, and we couldn’t be more appreciative. The team at The Fed were outstanding too. I can’t wait to see how much we can raise and what we can achieve next year.”

Peter Bartley, Bradley Hall’s group director and trustee for Heel & Toe Children’s Charity said: “Heel & Toe is an independent local charity which completely relies on donations to provide much needed therapy for children with disabilities. We have been working with Heel & Toe for many years and I am so pleased that we are able to continue supporting them, as well as the other charities such as Marie Curie Newcastle’s Hospice and NE Youth at this year’s festive fundraiser.”

Jon Niblo, chief executive at NE Youth said: “At NE Youth we place great value on our relationship with our corporate sponsors such as The Inn Collection Group and therefore we are delighted to be involved in the Bradley Hall’s festive fundraiser this year. The money raised at Bradley Hall’s sixth festive fundraiser will make a massive impact to the children and young people we help on a daily basis, and I am extremely thankful.”

Kelly Knighting-Wykes, head of fundraising for the North of England at Marie Curie said: “We have been working with Bradley Hall for many years and are incredibly appreciative of their support.

“The money that was raised at the fundraiser will go towards specialist care and support for local people living with terminal illness and their families. The level of care offered by the nurses at Marie Curie is second to none, from offering support to family and friends, to ensuring the individual living with terminal illness is given the practical and emotional support they need, the Newcastle nurses are there every step of the way. I cannot thank Bradley Hall enough.”
