800 professionals turned up the heat at the city's hottest charity event

Hundreds of Nottingham’s property and construction professionals came together on (21 November) to raise money for local charity, Switch Up.

More than 800 industry leaders danced, sang and celebrated at the fifteenth annual Nottingham Hot Property (NHP) event held at PRYZM, with the funds raised going towards helping vulnerable young people across Nottinghamshire.

The chosen charity for 2019 is Switch Up, a Nottingham organisation that uses a combination of physical activity, mentorship, counselling and education to help young people with complex issues.

Marcellus Baz BEM, founder and CEO of Switch Up, said:

“The event was brilliant with some amazing performances – I was blown away by how good everyone was!

“We’re so grateful to Nottingham Hot Property for choosing us to be its charity of the year. The support will help us to further link those from Nottingham’s most deprived communities with opportunities they didn’t know existed, providing positive role models, peer mentors, councillors, and support through difficult or challenging life situations.”

Siobhan Goodacre, one of the NHP organisers, said:

“This year’s event was absolutely incredible with all the acts stealing the show with their fantastic performances! Everyone put in a lot of rehearsal time to make our ‘Throwback’ theme extra special and with acts that ranged from Spice Girls to Journey, it really showed.

“Hot Property brings together so many professionals and it’s great to see everyone have an amazing night but also support such wonderful local charities like Switch Up. I think this year has been one of the best so far so I can’t wait to see how much we raised.”

The sponsors for this year’s event include: Pulse Consult and Savills as headline sponsors as well as B&M Installations, Couch Perry Wilkes, CPMG, Faithful + Gould, Fraser Brown, Samclo Construction and Shakespeare Martineau. Joining these are: Invest in Nottingham, the event’s media partner The Business Desk, PR agency Cartwright Communications, design agency Blimey Creative and design and print agency Ginger Root.
