CBRE’s Manchester office raised over £4,500 for Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity, by hosting a quiz night which was attended by the firm’s staff, colleagues and clients at Revolucion de Cuba in Manchester City Centre.
Among the auction lots were a signed Manchester United FC Pennant, tickets for Manchester United matches against Manchester City and Swansea in addition to a tailored shirt from Richard Smith Bespoke, an overnight stay at the new boutique hotel, King St Townhouse and an England ‘legends’ signed rugby shirt to name a few.
Guests also picked up prizes from the raffle which included; tickets for the Halle Orchestra, spa treatments at The Lowry Hotel, afternoon tea at The Palace Hotel, a Trafford Centre gift card, a meal voucher for Beef & Pudding and drinks at MCR 42 on Chorlton Street.
The proceeds from the evening are being donated to Shelter, which is the only national housing and homelessness charity in the UK. According to Shelter, every £100 raised helps one family, therefore CBRE’s efforts have helped 45 families who are facing bad housing and homelessness.
Aimee Parkinson from CBRE, who was on the event committee, commented; “We are delighted to have raised over £4,500 for such an important charity. We would like to thank all the businesses who kindly donated such a fantastic range of prizes and lots, and to all the people who attended and made the enjoyable evening such a success.”
