We are hugely grateful to the staff, suppliers and clients of Galliford Try Partnerships who have now raised an incredible £50,000 to help support children with cancer and their families across the developing world.
The partnership started with Galliford Try's Marc Thompson raising over £3,000 by summiting Mount Jebel Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak. Later In September all nine of the Company's offices took part in the Tour de Try, a major cycling event covering more than 847 miles, the distance between all of Galliford Try Partnerships’ offices across the UK.
Stephen Teagle, Chief Executive of Galliford Try Partnerships said;
"2018 has seen some great achievements as the Partnership’s business grows with, significant bids converted to new schemes with new clients, multiple awards won and of course we beat our fundraising target of £50,000 for World Child Cancer. And we have housed more people this year than any other. Acting as a responsible developer not only turns housing into thriving communities, but also provides a platform to improve the lives of those in places that are less fortunate. Our partnership with World Child Cancer is fantastic, thank you to our clients, suppliers and employees for their incredible fundraising efforts."
Jon Rosser World Child Cancer Chief Executive, commented;
“I want to congratulate everyone at Galliford Try Partnerships for reaching their £50,000 target. Their support will help children like Kessie in Ghana whose mother initially could not afford to pay for the treatment her daughter desperately needed. With the support of Galliford Try Partnerships, we can help more children like her."
The partnership has also seen World Child Cancer feature as the beneficiary of multiple fundraising events including industry dinners, golf days, bake sales and more. Galliford Try Partnerships has been a fantastic supporter of World Child Cancer in 2018 and we are excited to see what the future holds as the partnership continues in 2019.
