Bristol Team Raises Money for Cystic Fibrosis
South West property professionals raise £2,878 for Cystic Fibrosis Trust

More than 130 property and construction industry professionals from across the South West have raised over £2,800 for charity at a quiz night organised by the Bristol team of property consultancy, Ridge and Partners LLP (Ridge).

The Ridge annual Twelfth Night event, which this year took place at Revolution Bar in the city centre, raises money for the consultancy’s chosen charity partner. This year, Ridge has chosen to donate all proceeds from the event to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The money raised has exceeded the firm’s target of £2,500 for this event and is more than double the amount raised in 2017. The donation to Cystic Fibrosis Trust will go towards funding multiple research projects, the provision of literature and guidance and grants for those living with cystic fibrosis, which affects more than 10,400 people across the UK and 92 people in Bristol.

Ridge, which is celebrating its 30th year in Bristol in 2018, actively supports the local communities, businesses and charities which each of its 10 offices serve. The 28-strong Bristol team raised more than £1,200 for last year’s charity partners, Stepping Out Theatre Company, Beresford Group and Bristol Dogs and Cats Home.

Greg Aston, Partner at Ridge in Bristol, said: “The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is a charity very close to our hearts at Ridge so it was a unanimous decision to pick it as our charity partner for 2018. We are delighted to have raised so much money for such a worthy cause and we look forward to continuing our fundraising efforts throughout the year. A big thank you to everyone who came along and supported this popular event.”

Jessica Barnard, Community Fundraiser for the West region at Cystic Fibrosis Trust, added: “We are incredibly fortunate that Ridge has chosen the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as its charity of the year for 2018. Cystic fibrosis is not something that many people really understand, and yet there are over 10,400 people living with the life-shortening condition in the UK and millions more carrying the gene. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to supporting those affected by cystic fibrosis and this fantastic amount of money will go a long way.”

Ridge, which is a multi-discipline property consultancy, was recently announced as Construction Consultant of the Year by Building magazine, beating stiff competition from many other major players across the construction industry.
