Send Season’s Greetings with GM Fundraising

GM Fundraising Christmas cards are now on sale! The children at Hope House Children’s Hospices have been working very hard to create a pair of very special and unique cards which are sold in packs of 20 and can be personalised with company logos and messages.

“This year Callie and Lily have produced the very special Christmas drawings that we used to create the cards this year,” explains GM Fundraising team member, Alan Sadler. “These cards have become a tradition for us and every year the designs from the children get more and more special. Last year we sold more than 5,000 cards, many personalised with messages and logo’s. Every penny we raise from these cards goes straight to supporting the children and families at Hope House.

“Each pack contains 20 cards – 10 of each design – costing £20 plus £2.50 P&P. Orders over 60 packs can be personalised for a small additional charge.

“With Christmas just around the corners, why not be traditional and send a Christmas card to your customers, friends and family, and support this amazing cause at the same time?”

Packs can be purchased directly from the GM Fundraising website www.gmfundraising.co.uk/cards or from Alan Sadler, by email alan@gmfundraising.co.uk, or phone 0845 302 1966.

The Ride Story

After almost two decades of general fundraising, GM Fundraising commenced their charity cycle rides in 2005 with the Top2Bottom John O’Groats to Land’s End ride. The 974 mile ride cycled over 13 days by 10 riders raised over £51,000. Since this inaugural event, further international fundraising rides have taken place culminating in the high profile Hope 66 ride in 2013. The 2,666 ride along Route 66 was tough but in 2016 with the Border2Border distance, climbing and heat challenges, the team will face their biggest challenge yet both physically and mentally.

Where does the money go?

The beneficiaries are Hope House Children’s Hospices who GMF has supported for the last 15 years raising over £1.2 million in the process. Based in Oswestry and Conwy Bay, Hope House provides palliative care and support to life limited children offering a range of services including respite and end of life care at the hospices or at home, and the organisation supports counselling, advocacy and the promotion of children’s, young people’s and carer’s rights.

Children, young people and family members are welcomed into a friendly, homely environment with the child or young person at the centre. Support offered includes physical, psychological, and spiritual care from a team including experienced doctors, nurses and other care professionals. This support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.


GM Fundraising was set up in 1995 by Gary Morton a well-known industry figurehead. The charity is now widely regarded as the charity of choice for the glazing industry and is supported by a dedicated team of volunteers.

To date the charity has raised over £1,106,000 for various children’s hospices, with £1,004,000 going directly to Hope House Children’s Hospices over the last 11 years. An amazing £411,000 of this has come from the epic cycling rides that have taken the team across the UK, Europe and USA. Other fund raising events include golf days and gala dinners.

In 2013 the team cycled 2,616 miles across the iconic Route 66 in the USA, branded as ‘Hope 66’ in just 14 days. The route from Chicago to Santa Monica took riders across the desert in Arizona and over the Rocky Mountains.
