Following the presentation in December from Salford based Charity Broughton House, Rotarian John Doyle, who is also chair of the RICS Greater Manchester Quantity Surveying & Construction Committee, selected Broughton House for his charity for his annual dinner in January 2016 where over £8,000 was raised on the night.

 

Broughton House are the sole independent provider for nursing, residential and palliative end of life care for veterans of the armed forces, and merchant Navy in the North West, which Trailblazers first supported with their Oscar Wilde Theatre night back in October 2015.

 

The annual RICS Gtr Manchester QS & Construction dinner is one of the largest dinner of its kind in the UK with over 900 guests, and brings together construction professionals from all over Gtr Manchester.

 

In John's term as Chair of the RICS Gtr Manchester QS and Construction Committee, he selected another charity which he had met and supported through Trailblazers, Kidscan, where £8,000 was raised in January 2015.

 

John said “Trailblazers Rotary Club isn’t just about fundraising, it’s about realising what you can make a difference and linking different parts of your life. In my role of chair my Local Professional Group for the RICS, I got to have a say over what charities would be selected for our annual dinner, and using the charities that I had met through Trailblazers at one of our dinner meetings resulting in record funds being raised at each dinner.”
