Realis Estates is delighted to have raised £14,610.48 for Acorns Children’s Hospice at its third annual comedy event at The Glee Club, which took place on 27th April 2016.
The event was attended by over 250 people from the property world who enjoyed a drinks reception, dinner and a fantastic night of comedy all in aid of a great cause. Guests dug deep for the raffle – prizes included a signed Aston Villa football, Glee Club tickets and dinner for two at San Carlo restaurant – raising £4,000 alone. In addition, over £2,000 was raised in the auction with a pair of tickets to see Beyonce and Bruce Springsteen at Wembley being just two of the prizes up for grabs.
Duncan Mathieson, Managing Director of Realis Estates commented “We are extremely grateful to everyone who has donated and helped us to achieve this substantial amount and we are absolutely delighted to have raised almost £15,000 for this wonderful cause.
Acorns Children’s Charity provides specialist care and support, fun and laughter for children and young people with life limiting or life threatening conditions and their families. In 2015, Acorns supported over 800 children and more than 1,030 families, including those who are bereaved.
Mathieson continued: “Acorns is a charity which is very close to my heart and one which we have supported over a number of years. The money raised will have a profound impact on the work that the hospice is able to achieve and I would like to thank everyone who has supported the event this year, with special thanks to our event sponsors, PDR Construction Ltd, Trident Building Consultancy, Gleeds, Lambert Smith Hampton and 5or6 Limited.”
