This year’s GM Fundraising Golf Day at the Telford Hotel and Golf Resort, was arguably the best yet, with an amazing £9,405.20 raised during the event. As the industry’s preferred charity, it highlighted the continued generosity of the companies and individuals involved.
There were a number of prizes including leading individuals, Malcolm MacKenzie of Lifestyle Windows and John Hewitt of Glazerite, with the winning team from Mila Hardware. Joint runners up in the team event went to Glazerite Windows and Dekko Window Systems. David Higgs from Promac Group was nearest the pin and Mick Madigan of Quickslide hit the longest drive.
Once the day’s festivities were completed, there was a little networking at the bar, before the attendees made a quick turnaround for the evening event. GM Fundraising has built an impressive reputation for putting the fun back into fundraising and did not disappoint with an auction, raffle and impressive 3 course dinner.
GM Fundraising will be putting on a further charity event in the near future, in the form of the Gala Dinner and will be looking to pass the £3/4 million pound mark raised for Hope House Children’s Hospices. It’s an event not to be missed and there will be a full announcement coming soon, so follow us on twitter @gmfundraising and help build our following!
Gary Morton, chairman of GM Fundraising commented: “Every year I applaud the industry and yet again we’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone. More than ever Hope House needs our support, at a time when their income is considerably down. Events like this help re-address the balance and we hope to put on an amazing Gala Dinner in the near future. Thank you once again to all those involved.”
