PROPS Awards 2022 raises £350,000 for children charity

This year’s PROPS Awards ceremony has raised £350,000 for Variety, the Children’s Charity.

Variety offers practical help for disabled and disadvantaged children and young people through the provision of customised wheelchair and specialist equipment grants, specially adapted and accessible transport, and educational and fun day trips.

The annual PROPS Awards event has been raising funds for the charity since 1992, and has, to date, funded the purchase of over 2,000 custom-built wheelchairs for disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK.

Celebrating its 30th year, the ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane was hosted by former England rugby union star and broadcaster Martin Bayfield (pictured above, left).

Dante Marvin (right) — Variety’s young ambassador, who is also currently part of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent — also made a guest appearance at the awards and lunch.

Neil Sinclair, PROPS chair and chief executive at Palace Capital, said: “I want to say a huge thank you to all who attended this year’s PROPS awards and to our sponsors and donors. 

“The funds raised allow Variety to help disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK — support that, in tough times, is needed more than ever.” 

Conrad Hollingsworth, chief executive at Variety, added: “To have raised £350,000 is a terrific achievement. 

“Thank you on behalf of all the children and young people who will receive life-transforming wheelchairs. 

“Please remember that your support is making a real difference to children and families today.”
