Hundreds of Nottingham business professionals came together last night (16 November) to raise money for local chosen charity Rainbows.
Over 600 industry leaders danced, sang and celebrated at the thirteenth Nottingham Hot Property (NHP) event held at PRYZM, with the funds raised going towards helping vulnerable children across Nottinghamshire.
Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People 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 event was absolutely fantastic and we are incredibly grateful to Nottingham Hot Property for choosing us as it’s charity of the year. Without essential funding such as this we wouldn’t be able to offer such crucial care so to many young people.”
Siobhan Goodacre, one of the NHP organisers, said: “This year’s event was absolutely incredible with all the acts stealing the show with their fantastic performances. The theme this year was ‘Top of the Notts’ and celebrated various artists from Blondie to Little Mix. They all really put in the time to rehearse and the show was a huge success as a result – we can’t thank all the performers enough for all their hard work.
“Hot Property brings together so many local professionals for such amazing local charities which do such astounding work for disadvantaged children across the region and this year has been one of the best so far – the reaction we’ve had has been incredible.”
Sponsors of Hot Property 2017 include Millward, Pulse Associates, Samclo Construction, Paragon Interiors, Couch Perry Wilkes, Roythornes Solicitors, Cleggs Solicitors, Faithful+Gould, CPMG, Browne Jacobson, Blimey Creative and Cartwright Communications.
