Team RL taking part in CEO Sleepout for homelessness


On the 31st of October 2016 Emma Whitby-Smith, Head of Investments, Gaynor Whiting, Portfolio Manager, Frances Ward, Sales and Marketing Manager, David Keir, Investment Manager, James Short, FP & A Analyst, Andrew McKee, Investment Analyst and Alex Turner, FP & A Manager from Residential Land, will be sleeping out overnight at Lord’s cricket ground with 100 other people from the business community.

Team RL will be taking part to help raise vitally needed funds for the Cardinal Hume Centre’s work tackling poverty and homelessness. Last year over 1,400 people came to the Centre looking for help, advice and support as times became tougher for them and their families.

While sleeping out for this one night does not compare to the reality for those people who face it day in and day out, the act of solidarity will help highlight the issue of poverty and raise funds for the Centre’s work.

Please sponsor the Residential Land team taking pat in this CEO Sleepout and help send the message that homelessness and poverty should simply not exist in the modern world.


Thank you very much for your support.

Presidents Club Charitable trust fully funds the HDU of Great Ormond Street Hospital

We are proud to announce that the Presidents Club Charitable Trusts generous donation helped to fully fund The High Dependency Unit at the Premier Inn Clinical building of Great Ormond Street Hospital.


The hospital is now on schedule and on budget to complete the build next year. The donation helped the hospital and its staff to create a lasting legacy for  one-third of the young patients who undergo surgery every year. This is vital work which often cannot be carried out anywhere else in the country. The support means many more sick children will be able to access life-saving surgery and are able to recover with their families in the best possible environment.

The Presidents Club was founded almost 30 years ago to raise money for underprivileged children in London. Their vision; to help as many as possible. Over the years, esteemed members of the investment, real estate, sports, entertainment, motor industry and fashion world have come together to support the trust in its work to help as many worthy children’s causes.

Residential Land support a Powered Wheelchair Programme through “the PROPS” Lunch in May, 2014

Residential Land was delighted to attend the 23rd PROPS Awards held at the Hilton Park Lane in May.  This prestigious annual event is organised by Variety Club for the very best in the property sector.  It was a wonderful afternoon raising over £300,000 to support the charity and especially the Variety Wheelchair programme.

For the second year the event was hosted by Martin Bayfield, a long-time supporter of the charity. He lent a cool and calm charm to proceedings, effortlessly taking a more comedic tone when required.  He was assisted by Miss World 2014, Megan Young, who helped him to present awards to the lucky winners.  Alongside the 800 property professionals in attendance were ambassadors Megan Wood and Freya Levy, both Team GB Paralympic basketball hopefuls whose wheelchairs are provided by the Variety Club.

Residential Land’s donation to the charity has been spent on a “Salsa-Midi” powered wheelchair for 10 years old Ellis Cull from Kent. Ellis’ family have explained the difference the wheelchair has made to their lives; “Having this powered wheelchair means a lot to us, as now we can enjoy more time together outside. Ellis already enjoyed couple of trips to the river and his first trip to a hockey game. All this is just a beginning”.
