Full-service property specialist Bradley Hall hosted its annual Festive Fundraiser in December with the aim of raising tens-of-thousands of pounds for local charities NE Youth, Bravehearts of the North East, and Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The event, which hosted 600 guests at The Fed, Gateshead, was supported by key sponsors – Housebuilders Strata Homes and Pubs with Rooms company The Inn Collection Group – and raised £55,000 in total.

Since the launch of its annual fundraiser, Bradley Hall has raised and donated over £300,000 for 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.

Cassie Moyse, group marketing director at Bradley Hall said: “Last year’s Festive Fundraiser was a great success and we’re delighted to have enjoyed yet another fantastic event this year, in partnership with Inn Collection Group, Strata and Portfolio North.

“Having The Inn Collection Group and Strata on board allowed us to raise even more funds for these deserving charities in exchange for some excellent exposure for the businesses.

“Since starting our Christmas fundraising event a few years ago, we have raised a staggering amount for local organisations, which wouldn’t have been achievable without the support of our sponsors, guests and the charities involved – as well as all the very generous people and organisations who donate raffle and auction prizes every year.

“Hundreds of charity and community service users have been supported by the funds raised and donated and we are truly grateful for everyone who has been a part of our Festive Fundraisers.”

This year’s Festive Fundraiser also marked 35 years of Bradley Hall, which has grown from operating a single office to branches across the North, including Alnwick, Morpeth, Gosforth, Durham, Teesside, Sunderland, Newcastle, and Leeds.

Bradley Hall’s growing expert team continue to work towards making the North a better place, to live, work and socialise.

Neil Hart, group CEO at Bradley Hall, said: “Being able to raise money for three very important local charities such as NE Youth, Bravehearts of the North East and the Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation is something we are very proud of, and we would like to thank our guests and business partners who have purchased tables and the local businesses which have donated prizes.

“As a northern business, it’s important for us to do what we can to support community organisations and charities which support our local people.

“Our Festive Fundraiser brings together a lot of people who can each give a little, meaning that we can collectively make a positive impact to the charities which we work with. Thank you to everyone involved.”

The Inn Collection Group has been supporting NE Youth – a leading North East youth development charity – since 2019.

Owing to this, the pub with rooms group were keen to support them further through a partnership of Bradley Hall’s Festive Fundraiser.

Sean Donkin, The Inn Collection Group managing director and NE Youth trustee, said: “We were delighted to support Bradley Hall’s Festive Fundraiser this year.

“Supporting our local communities is hugely important to us and these two charities do brilliant work in the North East, so becoming the partner sponsor was a great fit for us.”

Gemma Smith, managing director of Strata, said: “We were delighted to sponsor Bradley Hall’s 35th birthday Festive Fundraiser to raise money for some amazing charities.

“The fun-filled event was one to remember and raised a great sum to help some of those most in need.”
