Peak, Paddle, Pedal
GM Fundraising has just announced its 2020 women-only event to raise money for Hope House Children’s Hospices. It’s called Peak, Paddle, Pedal and the 12 members of the team will each be climbing Snowdon, canoeing 150 miles down the length of the River Severn and cycling 150 miles back to Hope House in Oswestry – all over eight days next August.
Gary Morton, founder of GM Fundraising, said: “Our first women-only event in 2017, Paddle2Pedal, was an incredible success and we can’t wait to do it again with this significantly increased challenge. We’re also very grateful to the Epwin Group, which has agreed to be our headline sponsor once again.”
Each member of the team has committed to raising at least £3,000 for Hope House Children’s Hospices. The full list of industry ladies taking part in Peak, Paddle, Pedal are: Clare O’Hara and Katrina Earl of Epwin Window Systems, Charlotte Mercer of Edgetech, Samantha Nuckey of Window Ware, Deborah Hendry of Kolorseal, Helen Downer of ERA Home Security, Nikki Dunbar of Balls2Marketing, Sioned Roberts of ALUK, Sarah Hitchings of Window Widgets, Diane Rothwell of P&R, Hayley Lowndes of Swish Building Products and Amy Hunter of Sheffield Window Centre.
Supporting the team on their journey are GM Fundraising veterans, Gary Morton, Alan Sadler, Graeme Bailey and Dave Broxton as well as canoe expert Mark Bache from Epwin Group.
The 12 members of the Peak, Paddle, Pedal team are already in training for next year. Keep an eye out for further updates by following #GMFPPP and #forthekids across social media platforms – and get ready to sponsor them for what will be a challenge of a lifetime for a very worthy cause!
