PROPERTY professionals from the Portsmouth area raised more than £1,000 for charity at their annual dinner.

The money will be donated to Hounds for Heroes, and was raised at the 93rd annual charity dinner by Portsmouth Property Association.

The event, attended by 100 business professionals at The Royal Marines Museum in Southsea, saw donations come in for the charity, which provides specially-trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled people from the Armed Forces.

Barry King, PPA chairman and chartered legal executive at regional solicitors Glanvilles LLP, said: ‘PPA members were once again generous to a fault.

‘It’s fitting, given this awe-inspiring military venue, that people who served Queen and Country will benefit from the great work Hounds For Heroes are doing.’

Meanwhile, in the event programme, Barry paid tribute to the ‘resilience’ of the local property industry for its agility in responding to five years of economic challenges.
