About Us

Property for Kids (PFK) is the collective name for a group of individuals who formed a committee with the sole intent of raising money for disadvantaged children in the West Midlands. ‘PFK’ supports many charities, large and small, primarily those with which our donation will provide a useful asset, such as a safe playground, a minibus or specialist equipment.

PFK came into being in the 1980s, precisely when, we are unsure. Suffice to say, some London-based property people said the provinces couldn’t arrange a decent social event and raise money at the same time. Never ones to avoid a challenge, a Horse Racing night was arranged with great success and Property for Kids was born. Over the years, many people have contributed to the Committee, volunteering their time and skills to help make our events a success.

You will see throughout the website images from events we have held. Themed nights such as The Birmingham Hunt Ball, Bond Goes to Rio, Top of the Pops, A Night with the Stars, Moulin Rouge, Arabian Nights , Blazing Saddlebags and Flappers & Dappers have enabled us to raise in excess of £500,000 through the generosity of all those who have attended.

In 2006, we launched the BRENDAs. Forget those tall, slim gold statues, we have short, slightly plump versions for those in the world of property whose contributions to the industry are in some way unique. Always a sell out event, these prizes are treasured by the winners, so if you are ever invited to the event, come along and witness this most prestigious of ceremonies!

There are a great many organisations who strive hard to help children with physical or mental handicaps or who simply have few opportunities in their lives. Property for Kids is proud to support these organisations through the generosity of the property industry.
