At the end of last month, London real estate agency Draker Lettings hosted a charity event to raise money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The company arranged an exclusive film screening of Studio 54, the documentary about the world’s most famous nightclub in New York.
Draker offered free tickets to the event at the Soho Hotel in London, raising £1,300, which all went to the aforementioned charity.
This exclusive opportunity for landlords was a unique chance for those who attended to see the film before its general release later this year.
Tim Hassell, Managing director at Draker said: “We wanted to organise a positive event and something quite special for our clients. A fun and exclusive evening with drinks, nibbles and a great film.
“The Royal Marsden does an astonishing job, making a real difference in the lives of so many people and we are absolutely delighted to offer our support and to have raised a grand total of £1,300.
“We dedicated the evening to our very special client Amy Feinberg, along with all others who have been touched by the incredible work of The Royal Marsden.”
Lydia Clark, Senior Community Fundraising Manager, The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity said: “Congratulations to Draker on a fantastic evening! We are so grateful that they chose to support The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity by hosting this wonderful event and we would like to thank everyone involved.
“The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises money solely to support The Royal Marsden. We ensure their nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and develop life-saving treatments used in the UK and worldwide.
“From funding state-of-the-art equipment and ground-breaking research, to creating the very best patient environments, we will never stop looking for ways to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.
“Without the help of our amazing supporters, we would not be able to continue funding all the important research and work done by The Royal Marsden.”
Draker is not alone in its achievement to raise money for charity recently, as landlord and letting expert Paul Shamplina hosted the annual ‘Rumble with the Agents’ in the same week, raising £16,000.
