The first HQR Ball in 2016 achieved an attendance of 660 representatives across the HQR London residential sector.
Our charitable target of £30k was smashed with a fantastic £54,300 being raised for our two chosen charities; The Lighthouse Club and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
A fun time was had by all and attendees enjoyed a ‘boogie’ to the ‘Hand Fulla Soul’ band followed by a DJ until the evening came to a close at 1am.
“Everyone looked like they were having a ball and I felt very proud to be part of the industry” Mandi Cleyndert, Bill Cleyndert & Co (2016 table host)
“I hope this was the first of many annual events – there were so many people from our sector there who it was really good to catch up with and see. What a great concept. We look forward to next year” Nick Walton, Walton Wagner (2016 table host)
“It was a fantastic evening that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed and it was good to catch up with lots of people on a social as well as business level” Martyn Winney, Francis Terry & Associates (Guest of Walter Lilly)
