The Midlands branch of the Office Agents Society (OAS) has waved the chequered flag again at this year’s go-karting day, with £1,000 of charity sponsorship.

Sponsored by The Colmore Building, the 14-storey office building in Birmingham city centre which has been enhanced and relaunched by AshbyCapital, the event saw 19 property professionals battle it out at the Teamworks indoor karting track in Birmingham.

Ben Truslove from Worcester commercial property agency John Truslove took the top step on the podium, with Knight Frank’s Richard Williams and Kelvin Craddock from JLL coming in second and third respectively.

The money raised from the event will go to the organisation’s nominated charity, Moseley-based NICE, which helps children and adults with movement disorders.

George Jennings, Chair of the Midlands branch of the OAS, said: “We’re exceedingly grateful to The Colmore Building and AshbyCapital for sponsoring this event and adding to our fundraising target for this year. While events like these are always good fun, they have a much broader purpose in supporting NICE, which is a fantastic local charity. We are hoping to make another significant contribution this year that will help them continue the hugely important work that they do.”

The OAS is a national organisation that represents the interests of office agents across the UK, bringing its members together on both social and professional levels to build strong networks within each region.

The Midlands OAS will next be undertaking a study tour to Liverpool in May, followed by its annual Property Summer Party at Primativo’s on 22nd June.
