Glass Times raffle raises over £2,000

Glass Times has helped raise over £2,000 for GM Fundraising in an online raffle.

All the funds will go directly to Hope House Children’s Hospices, which provides palliative care for children with life-limiting conditions and support for their families, both on site and in their homes.

Andy Westhead, publisher of Glass Times, said: “We always hold a charity draw at our annual Glass Times Raceday. When we had to cancel our 2020 event due to Covid-19, we didn’t want to lose the opportunity to raise money for the charity, so we decided to hold an online raffle for GM Fundraising who do incredible work raising much-needed funds for Hope House.”

Gary Morton, founder of GM Fundraising, said: “Huge thanks to Glass Times and everyone in the industry who bought a ticket. Your donations will once again make a big difference to Hope House.”
