On Tuesday 10th May 2016, Variety, The Children’s Charity hosted the 25th “PROPS” lunch and raised an amazing £380,000 net towards Variety’s wheelchair programme.

With over 900 guests, a packed ballroom at The London Hilton on Park Lane was MC’d by long-term PROPS supporter and former British Lion Martin Bayfield, alongside Miss World Mireia Lalaguna from Spain who presented the awards to the lucky winners.

Founded by Neil Sinclair, CEO, Palace Capital plc and Ronnie Nathan, CEO, Capital & Overseas Holdings, “the PROPS” was the first property industry awards event in the UK and, 24 years on, is still the most prestigious raising since inception nearly £9.5 million, which has not only funded more than 2,000 Powered Wheelchairs but also a £250,000 donation towards the Children’s Intensive Care Unit at St. George’s Hospital in South London.

We want to say a huge thank you to ‘the PROPS’ Lunch committee, as well as to all our sponsors, advertisers, prize donors and guests.
