25 year celebrations

GM Fundraising is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

Gary Morton, founder of GM Fundraising, said: “When we started GM Fundraising 25 years ago we had no idea what it would become. There’s a huge thank you due to everyone who’s supported us over the years, whether it’s by taking part in one of our challenges, donating sponsorship money or providing their time and expertise. Together, we’ve raised an incredible amount for Hope House Children’s Hospices, which is the most important achievement.”

GM Fundraising is hosting a Silver Jubilee ball on May 16 at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, Wales.

A new logo has also been designed featuring the milestone, and will appear on all publicity throughout the year.

GM Fundraising has hosted gala dinners, golf days, a Ryder Cup style golf event, long-distance cycle rides, and footy fives competition, all in the name of fundraising.

One of biggest of this year’s challenges will be the second all-women challenge, which has the Epwin Group as its headline sponsor. Peak, Paddle, Pedal will see the 12-strong team climb Snowdon, canoe 150 miles down the length of the River Severn, and cycle 150 miles back to Hope House in Oswestry, all over eight days this August.

GM Fundraising was established in 1995 and have been raising funds for Hope House Children’s Hospices, which provides palliative care for children with terminal conditions and support for their families, both on site and in their homes. Over 95% of Hope House’s £5 million annual operating costs are met through charitable donations and GM Fundraising is its largest single annual donor.

Tickets for the ball at Celtic Manor Resort are £1,495 for a table of ten, and are available by emailing sarah@gmfundraising.co.uk or gary@gmfundraising.co.uk. All profits go to Hope House Children’s Hospices.
