It's time to enter the Yorkshire's residential property awards which also raise vital funds for a children's charity

The Yorkshires. Residential Real Estate Awards are now open for entry and designers, developers, estate agents, consultants et al are being urged to get their submissions in before the deadline of August 12, 2024.

The awards put the region’s property talent in the spotlight and combine positive PR and a pat on the back for the sector with networking and a great night out.

Most importantly, the awards event helps raise vital funds for the organisers, Yorkshire Children’s Charity and this is a chance for property businesses to help raise much needed money to help those children in need in our region. Many of their stories are truly heartbreaking and the work this small charity does has been life-changing for many.
