Roll up, roll up

Tables are still available for Circus Beserkus, the 19th GM Fundraising Gala Dinner, which is taking place on June 9, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza in Stratford-upon-Avon.

“Around 300 guests will be entertained by the thrills and spills of the traditional circus that plans to be anarchic and outrageous, with some sinister glamour thrown in,” Gary Morton, founder of GM Fundraising, said. “Our dinners are traditionally a black-tie event and fancy dress is always optional, but why not embrace the spirit of circus and come dressed as a sinister clown, trapeze artist, strong man, bearded lady, human canon ball, or a lion tamer – the weirder the better. If not, then black tie is absolutely fine as well.

“The Gala Dinner is one of our signature events and one that has been with us from the start, and we are delighted to see it return to the calendar for the 19th time. Our last dinner, the witches and wizards halloween themed affair, which took place in October 2016, was the most successful dinner yet, raising £41,550. It will be a tough act to follow, but we are excited about the plans for the evening and have some fantastic prizes for the raffle and auction.

“For GM Fundraising, it’s all about having fun while raising much needed funds for charity, and the dinner will be another fantastic opportunity to get all our supporters together to do just that. All proceeds raised from ticket sales and during the evening itself, go directly to support the efforts of Hope House Children’s Hospices, who provide vital care and support to children and with life limiting illnesses.”

Tables of 10 can be purchased for £1,195 – email
