Charlotte Farrington, CEO of Yorkshire Children’s Charity, says: “We were delighted to welcome over 600 guests to Yorkshires. Residential Real Estate Awards Thursday night this week.

“This event at New Dock Hall was presented by David Flatman who is close to our cause and it was a fantastic opportunity for us to not only celebrate the best in the residential real estate industry, but also to raise all significant funds to enable us to carry out our important work.”

Charlotte adds, “This fundraising event and the other events we organize play a crucial role in fulfilling our mission as a charity.

“They give us the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children in Yorkshire.”

“So far this year, our fundraising has enabled us to provide toys to children who otherwise would not have had them and we have funded every grant application that has met our charitable goals, providing equipment to children with autism, cerebral palsy and ADHD, as well as the launch of our first Great Yorkshire Build project, transforming Brooklands Special Educational Needs and Disabled School in Skipton.
