Property event hits record for charity

Annual BRENDAs raises a stunning £56,000 for local children’s groups 

More than 400 of Birmingham’s most influential commercial property professionals raised a record £56,000 for local children’s charities at the annual BRENDAs event organised on behalf of Property for Kids. The fund-raiser at Macdonald Burlington Hotel saw everyone from Ozzy Osbourne to William, Prince of Wales take to the stage in a spoof, celebrity-inspired Snatch Game where contestants performed in front of peers to win specially designed gnomes. The event was sponsored by Estilo. Individual awards were sponsored by Vail Williams, GMI Construction, Nolan Associates, Benniman, Align Architecture, Nurtons, Ansty Horne, ESC and Willmott Dixon.
