Dragon’s Den spoof raises cash for kids

Children’s charities receive a huge boost from property professionals

Property experts were on the money, presenting their ingenious ideas to the dragons in Brendas’ Den – raising nearly £35,500 for charity at the annual spoof property awards lunch. Held at the Burlington Hotel, Birmingham, the satirical awards event, now in its 14th year, sees the property sector raise funds for the Property For Kids charity, which supports different children’s causes each year. Highlight of the evening, which was attended by more than 370 property professionals, was an auction which raised more than £18,000 of the final total.
