This year’s Women in Healthcare Property Forum Networking and Fundraiser (WHPF) event raised £12,000 for the Care Workers Charity (CWC).
The annual fundraising event was held at the Grosvenor Hotel on 30 November.
CWC CEO Alex Ramamurthy said: “The WHPF was well organised and a lot of fun. I had a chance to address the crowd to talk about some of the challenges faced by care workers and the great work being done by my team to address these challenges. A quick show of hands revealed about 20% of the room had heard of CWC, so it was an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the cause.
“These funds will allow us to help more care workers across the UK who find themselves in a crisis and need support.”
WHPF aims to support and empower women in the healthcare sector and create more female leaders at the top of the industry to reflect the true make-up of the workforce.
Attendees at this year’s event included banks, valuers, developers, solicitors, fund managers and operators.
Donors included: Hallmark Care Homes, Athena Care Homes (UK) Limited, Sweettree Home Care Services, C Squared Property Developments LTD, Carter Schwartz, Precious Homes, Steven Feldman Associates Ltd, Target, Frontier Estates, Christie & Co, Kent Finance, Carterwood, Goldfinch, Pembroke Group and BKR Care Consultancy.
The event was organised by Mala Agarwal, Trish Cantrell, Sue Earrey, Morgan Allen and Karen Whitehead.
The CWC supports the basic welfare of current, former and retired care workers by awarding hardship grants. To find out more visit www.thecareworkerscharity.org.uk/
