PAPPA members are gearing up for their black tie event of the year.

Once again, Plymouth’s Duke of Cornwall Hotel will be hosting the annual Christmas Charity Dinner on Friday 7th December.

It’s the highlight of the PAPPA events calendar and attracts many of the city’s leading property professionals.

“It is a chance for all our members and their invited guests to come together and enjoy an evening of good food and entertainment,” said Chairman Ben Dreher.

“Everybody works so hard across the year in their respective industry sectors and once again the last 12 months have not been without their challenges. That’s why it is great to have a night when we can forget business, relax and have a good time.”

This year’s event will feature a three course festive meal and a comedian will be entertaining guests after dinner.

There is also a charity raffle to help raise funds for PAPPA’s two adopted charities this year, Horizons Children’s Sailing Charity and Friends and Families of Special Children Ltd.

Horizons Children’s Sailing Charity was formed in 1991 with the aim of building links with communities, schools and families in areas of social deprivation in Plymouth to offer a range of sailing activities.

Friends and Families of Special Children Ltd, a new beneficiary to PAPPA, is also based in Plymouth.  A non-profit organisation, it provides information, support and services for families with disabled children, including social and leisure events.

Tables of 10 for the charity dinner are available at a price of £350, and for more details contact ben.dreher@mansbridgeandbalment.com or call (01752) 229292.
