Company fundraising raises over £10,000
The BPAA, which brings together all those involved locally in commercial and residential property in the city, raised this money through a series of events, including its annual 'Cyclosportive', a dinner fundraiser, a golf day, tennis and boules competitions and an annual quiz.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Kiren Fernandes, said: "We were delighted to be chosen by the Bristol Property Agents Association as their nominated charity.
"The BPAA are a hugely respected organisation in Bristol and the partnership has not only raised an amazing amount of money for CLIC Sargent but has also helped raise the profile of CLIC Sargent among companies within the property industry in Bristol”
Money to help fund Bristol Home from Home
Andrew Main of Savills in Bristol, who was BPAA Chairman for the 2013/14 financial year, chose the two charities when he took office.
He said: “I am delighted with the level of fundraising support we have been able to generate for these two worthy charities and would like to thank both the BPAA’s membership and all those who contributed for making this possible.
“The money raised for CLIC Sargent will go directly to supporting Sam’s House based in Cotham, so the benefits of our donation will be immediately felt within Bristol.”
The total was announced at the annual dinner which was held in February at the Thistle Hotel, Bristol. The final amount was also bolstered by a quick game of ‘Heads and Tails’ which raised almost £5,000 on the night.
Kiren, who attended the event, said: “The Bristol Property Agents Association is a unique and well respected organisation within Bristol Property Industry. This has been a fantastic partnership for CLIC Sargent and we are of course delighted with the total raised.
"We would like to thank Andrew Main for nominating us and the events committee for raising this fantastic amount. We wish incoming president, Jeremy Richards good luck with their new nominated charity."
