The HQR Summer Ball returned with a bang in 2022 following a disappointing two-year break due to the Pandemic.
The Ball, organised on behalf of the High Quality Residential construction contingent proved to be yet another success with guests from main contracting, architecture, engineering, quantity surveying, interior design, services and many specialist trade subcontractors attending.
All guests were welcomed with a sparkling wine reception and the opportunity to network with their peers, followed by a sumptuous three-course dinner, a charity raffle, live auction and silent auction with dancing until 1am to the highly acclaimed and firmly established band of choice for HQR – Hand Fulla Soul. The pre-event fundraising, made up from a portion of each table sale was quickly topped up to a fantastic £85,000 with the help of the evening activities.
A brilliant time was once again had by those who attended the HQR Summer Ball, including many representatives from Walter Lilly – so much so that the HQR Ball will be returning next summer. Keep an eye on hqrlondon.com for details to be announced soon for HQR 2023.
Since its inception by Walter Lilly in 2016, the total raised by the HQR London Charitable Trust has now reached over half a million pounds. The Trustee’s made a commitment that the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity would benefit from half the funds raised at their events and we are delighted that the total donated to The Lighthouse Club now stands at over quarter of a million pounds (£265,979.70) in support of their mission that no construction worker or their family should feel alone in a crisis.
Walter Lilly is thrilled to remain the driving force behind the HQR London brand and are currently working, in conjunction with BTP Group, to deliver the Trust’s first HQR Golf Day in October this year.
