GM Fundraising is delighted to welcome Graeme Bailey, MD of leading software specialists Business Micros, back to the fundraising team. Graeme is a long-term supporter of GM Fundraising and after supporting the recent Paddle2Pedal challenge, has volunteered to once again be part of the team of industry fundraisers.
Gary Morton, chairman of GM Fundraising comments: “Graeme has been integral to GM Fundraising for many, many years and we are delighted to welcome him back in an official capacity. Graeme is one of the few supporters to have completed all of the six cycling challenges and has helped with many events over the years. His level of experience, expertise and kindness is invaluable when it comes to organising fundraising events, that need to be improved upon each time.
“After volunteering to help with the cycling element of the inaugural Paddle2Pedal challenge last summer, and ending up supporting the whole event, I couldn’t resist being more involved in the future of GM Fundraising,” says Graeme. “The camaraderie and fulfilment gained from organising events to raise money for such a worthy cause like Hope House is unrivalled. There are so many exciting things to come over the next few years; I hope my experience and insight can help to make them better than ever for GM Fundraising. I’ve really missed it and I’m glad to be back.”
Gary concludes: “Alongside the current fundraising team of myself, Alan Sadler of Profix, Susie Sinden of Brouha Marketing, Adrian Barraclough of Quickslide, Andrew Glover of West Yorkshire Windows and Alison Marsh of Hope House, with the addition of Graeme, we will have a fresh injection of energy to take us forward towards our target of £2million by 2020. We have some great events in 2018, like our infamous gala dinner and the second GMF Cup, as well as the launch of our next cycling challenge “From Russia With Hope” which will take place in 2019. There are also plans afoot for the next all female challenge. Watch this space…”
