Property professionals from across the North East and Scotland joined forces in May 2019 for the 3rd North East Property Rugby Festival to raise money for St Oswald’s. The day was another huge success and raised over £8000 for us, bringing their three-year total to over £25,000!
The annual festival has quickly established itself as a major networking event for North East surveyors, lawyers, architects and a range of construction professionals. Although beneficial to those working within the property sector, the main aim of the day is to have fun and to raise money for the Hospice.
We caught up with the committee to present them with the giant novelty cheque whilst out Elmer spotting along the Newcastle quayside.
Douglas Cranston, Partner at Knight Frank said:
We had such a great day this year and planning has already started for next year’s event. We can now announce the date for next year is Thursday 14th May and we may even have some new challengers to take on this year’s victorious Geordie Team!
As always, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors, the committee, staff and members at Northern Football Club for coming together already to start planning next year’s festival.
Laura Barrett, Senior Fundraiser for St Oswald’s said:
We love heading along to the Rugby Festival each year, it just seems to get bigger and better and being able to see over £25,000 raised for the Hospice from just a few events is just incredible. I know there are a few changes to next year’s event which will hopefully make it better than ever. We are definitely excited now and honestly can’t thank everyone enough for the work, determination and organisation of the event.
