We like to think we’re a fairly generous team at Property Week and in the past month we’ve gone a long way to support that.
Last week, a cheque was presented to Stephanie Moore – widow of England football legend Bobby Moore – for more than £10,000 for the Bobby Moore Fund, which raises money for bowel cancer research.
The money, raised at the PW Cup, held last month at QPR’s Loftus Road stadium, was more than double last year’s total. Property Week digital editor Richard Hook is pictured with Lambert Smith Hampton’s Jon Rea-Palmer and Jason Pinkett, the cup’s co-organisers, presenting the cheque.
Massive thanks to @PropertyWeek, @LSHtweets and @PorterfieldPR for putting on a second successful Property Week Cup and raising an incredible £10,654.19 to help us beat bowel cancer sooner! 👍 pic.twitter.com/Nd6RF52TJ4— Bobby Moore Fund (@BobbyMooreFund) June 7, 2018
And late last month, a Property Week team took on some of the property industry’s finest minds at the Great Property Pub Quiz 2018, held to raise money for the Josh Carrick Foundation.
Quality night representing @PropertyWeek at #greatpropertypubquiz and while might not have kept up with likes of @CarterJonas and @BNPPRE_UK proud to say we helped raise a great amount for @JoshCarrick_Fdn alongside @Mitchell_Labiak @davidjallen05 and more pic.twitter.com/hWclTOa5hJ— Rich Hook (@RichHookPW) May 24, 2018
The foundation, which funds research into testicular cancer, was also Property Week’s charity partner at last month’s RESI Awards and inaugural Industrial & Logistics Awards.
The three events raised an impressive £20,000 for the charity.
Less impressive was team PW’s sixth placing in the quiz. Colliers International’s team was the winner, but the magazine’s eggheads would have secured a higher finish if someone on the team had known which continent Russia was in!
