Bravo to GM

GM Fundraising has celebrated its annual fundraising gala dinner at the Crowne Plaza in Stratford-on-Avon, raising an impressive £66,814.76 for Hope House, a charity that provides vital care and support to children with life limiting illnesses and their families.

Entertainment for the evening was provided by Circus Beserkus, and included clowns, mime artists, strongmen and bearded and tattooed ladies. Gary Morton, founder of GM Fundraising, said: “This year’s gala dinner was the 20th one we’ve delivered and they just seem go from strength to strength. Everybody really throws themselves into the theme with some really fantastic outfits and a great time is had by all who attend. Of course, it’s not just about us all having a great time – we’re there to raise much needed funds for Hope House Children’s Hospice, and yet again, this wonderful industry of ours, didn’t fail to disappoint.

“The amount raised was the most we’ve ever raised at a gala dinner. As always, our thanks go to everyone who supported us with the raffle and auction prizes, as well as everyone who attended and played a part in the evening. We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the ongoing, unwavering support we receive from this fantastic industry we all work in.

“Every penny we raise goes directly to Hope House. At GM Fundraising, we will continue to do everything we can in order to support the great work they do. After hitting the £1m milestone of total funds raised in 2014, we’ve now set ourselves a target to go on and hit the £2m marker by 2020 and thanks to Circus Beserkus, we’re off to a great start.”

The next event held by GM Fundraising is the GMF golf day at Telford Hotel Golf & Spa Resort taking place on 5 July.
