MIPIM Reception Raises £4,300 for CRASH

The who’s who of the UK’s property industry raised over £4,000 for CRASH Charity at the 8th annual MIPIM Yes Oui Cannes reception.

Held on Wednesday 1st March at The Drift, the pre-MIPIM event was hosted and organised by Derry Long of Mollenhauer Group.

More than 400 key players in the UK property industry met for an evening of networking before heading down to Cannes for MIPIM 2017.

“This year we decided to do something slightly different and asked attendees to contribute £10,” explains Derry. “I am delighted to say that we raised £4,300 for CRASH to help them continue their work assisting hospice and homeless charities with their construction projects.”

It is wonderful that such a successful and well attended event can support the work of CRASH charity in this way. We are very grateful to Derry Long for choosing CRASH as the charity to benefit from your generosity.

Speaking about how the money raised will be used, Francesca added:

“We are delighted that your donations will go towards helping one the hospices that CRASH is currently assisting with their building project. This means that your generosity will have a real and lasting impact on people’s lives. Thank you.”

MIPIM Yes Oui Cannes reception was supported by Urbano Network, London Chamber of Commerce and Movers & Shakers. Event sponsors were Kingston Smith, Cubicost, Stewart Title, 8build & Butler & Young.
