The Piece Hall is an architectural and cultural phenomenon originally built in 1779 by the wool merchants of the town as a place to trade cloth, it is now the only surviving building of its kind anywhere in the UK.
Grade I Listed Piece Hall, the Art Library and Archive has recently undergone a £19 million conservation and transformation programme.
This event is in support of a Pledge 150 campaign that has been launched with charity LandAid to raise £2.25m and fund 150 bed spaces by December 2018 for young people at risk of homelessness across the UK.
With this in mind, we would ask for a minimum cash donation of £20 on the day of the event.
All proceeds from this event will be split between LandAid and The Piece Hall Trust.
As part of our 150-year anniversary in 2018, we want to highlight our public interest responsibility and the value of the surveying profession in developing influential solutions to society’s challenges in the UK.
Our fundraising programme will enable our partners LandAid to fund the provision of 150 bed spaces across all 12 RICS UK regions. RICS professionals will also have the opportunity to register their interest to provide pro bono support to local front line charities.
