A leading North East property firm is marking its 30thanniversary by walking 30km for a local cancer charity.

Fifteen members of the team at leading North East property firm, Bradley Hall Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents, are set to walk 30km in one day for the company’s charity of the year, Daft as A Brush Cancer Patient Care.

The walkers are set to complete the trek around Northumberland and Newcastle in a bid to raise as much as possible for the Daft as a Brush, which makes thousands of journeys annually, offering people not only free transport, but also emotional support from the volunteers who travel with patients.

Neil Hart, group managing director at Bradley Hall said, “Our 30thanniversary year is about accelerated growth, celebrating our recent success with our colleagues, partners and clients while also fundraising for the local charities which provide vital support to our communities.

“This particular challenge will see our staff each walk 30km in aid of this outstanding charity which offers transport and emotional support to thousands of people per year. We’re hoping to raise a considerable amount of money and awareness to help this charity, which relies solely on fundraising and donations, so that they keep supporting those who need it most.”

Bradley Hall began as a team of two surveyors in 1988, in its original Sandyford office. Since then, the team has grown to include 42 carefully selected experts with six offices across the region including; Alnwick, Morpeth, Gosforth, Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham.

The firm has grown at a rapid pace in recent years thanks to its successful growth strategy implemented by group managing director Neil Hart. In the past three years alone, the turnover has increased by an impressive 87%.

To date Daft as a Brush has a fleet of 22 ambulances, 18 of which have been adopted by primary schools from across the region and 2 by the Great North Children’s Hospital. Over 250 people volunteer as ambulance drivers and companions; staffing the information desk at the Freeman Hospital, the shop in Eldon Garden and at Daft as a Brush House.
