Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People has received a donation of £14,000 from property and construction professionals in Nottingham.

The donation follows the success of Nottingham Hot Property (NHP) 2017, a one-of-a-kind annual fundraising event attended by leading professionals in Nottingham. The event aims to showcase the best talent in the city, while raising thousands of pounds to support local youngsters.

Rainbows is the East Midlands’ only hospice that provides care and support for youngsters with life-limiting conditions. It is a place where children and their families can find care and support to help relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, support parents and siblings through their bereavements.

Matt Winn, organisational giving fundraiser at Rainbows, said: “The NHP event was absolutely fantastic and everyone at Rainbows has been blown away by the incredible amount raised – we are so thankful to Hot Property for nominating us as its charity of the year.

“We rely on funding from events like this to continue the great work we do. Everyone at Hot Property was fantastic and dedicated so much time to making the event a success.”

Sponsors of Hot Property 2017 included Millward, Pulse Associates, Samclo Construction, Paragon Interiors, Couch Perry Wilkes, Roythornes Solicitors, Cleggs Solicitors, Faithful+Gould, CPMG and Browne Jacobson. Joining these were the event’s media partner The Business Desk, PR agency Cartwright Communications and design agency Blimey Creative.

One of Hot Property’s organisers, Siobhan Goodacre, said: “We’re always blown away by the success of these events, but last year was one of our most successful for several years. It’s always amazing to see so many local professionals coming together to make a real difference, but £14,000 is a staggering amount.

“The theme, Top of the Notts, worked really well and all the acts got stuck into their performances – from numbers such as Proud Mary to Ring of Fire, the variety was fantastic. As ever the atmosphere was brilliant and the audience really helped to make the night.

“We also had a special tribute to the late Colin Walker, one of Hot Property’s trustees, which was a really special moment for the NHP family.

“We are now searching for new participants, who work in the property and construction industry, to get up on stage this year so if you would like to be involved then please get in touch.”
