Norfolk Property Network celebrate 1st birthday by pledging appeal support

Oct 26, 2016
The Norfolk Property Network (NPN) celebrated the groups 1st birthday, and as part of the festivities announced their long-term plans to support local children and young people with life-threatening conditions.

The independent property group, which was set up for the local property community, announced their support for our nook appeal at their 1st birthday event on Wednesday 17th August. The group has become the most recent member of the nook business network, joining more than 30 businesses from across Norfolk, and have pledge to raise at least £25,000 over the appeal.

The nook appeal aims to raise £10 million to transform children’s palliative care across the county, which includes a new purpose-built hospice the nook on a five-acre woodland site in Framingham Earl just south of Norwich.

NPN have already supported EACH, raising an impressive £1,375 at their black tie Christmas event through a charity auction. NPN hold bi-monthly networking events in Norwich where they welcome beginners to experienced investors. The events are free and include guest speakers and experts sharing experiences and strategies as well as plenty of networking opportunities.  In just a year NPN has become the biggest property networking event in Norfolk.

Dan Trivedi, founder of the Norfolk Property Network, said: “I was inspired to raise money for EACH after hearing how much they had helped one of my builders and his family through a very difficult time.  As a local property community I thought it right that we do our best to give back as much as possible, so I am delighted we are involved in the nook appeal.”

The group are already busy planning ways to raise valuable funds, including a Charity Monopoly Tournament and a Black Tie Christmas Dinner and Auction in December.

“We are hoping to get our fundraising off to a great start with these events, but there will be many more.  The nook is a fantastic appeal and we are very honoured to be able to help”  added Dan.

Sophie Mayes, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted that The Norfolk Property Network has pledged their support for our nook business network and are committed to helping make our vision of a new hospice for local life-threatened children and their families a reality.
