Gangsters, Mobsters, Flapper girls and Gatsby Gals were out in force on the river Avon for the GM fundraising Spring Ball with a 1920’s Guys and Dolls theme. A fun packed evening ensured a good time was had by all but of course no one forgot why they were there and as a result the Ball raised over £35,000 for the very worthy Hope House Children’s Hospices cause.
“As with all our events, the team behind GM Fundraising worked hard on the attention to detail for the Ball with themed entertainment during the reception drinks to the end of the evening,” says Gary Morton, Chairman of GM Fundraising. “The charity raffle was a huge success as was the auction with the latter particularly seeing generosity from guests hit an all-time high. And we couldn’t be more pleased to have raised over £35,000 in one evening to celebrate our 20th anniversary of fundraising.
“For GM Fundraising, it’s always about having fun whilst raising much needed funds for charity and the Spring Ball achieved precisely that. All proceeds raised from ticket sales and on 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.
“There is no time for the GM Fundraising team to relax though, because we are already busy limbering up (literally) for our next charity event, the GMF Football Fives!”
