GTM | GTM Host Charity Golf Day to Raise Awareness and Vital Funds for Macmillan Cancer Support
The team at Go Traffic Management (GTM) organised and hosted a charity golf day on Friday 3rd September to raise awareness and vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The event was also in support of their dear colleague, Callum Powell who was sadly diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer earlier this year. Since his diagnosis the team has done all they can to support Callum and his family through hosting a number of charity events and raising funds in his honour. The golf day event was held with Macmillan Cancer Support and raised an amazing £25,211 for the charity.
Following months of planning and essential sponsorship from key suppliers, the day was well attended by colleagues from across GTM and its sister companies Network Plus and Network Plus Multi Utility. Key sponsors included PMCE, Beacon Traffic Management, Kennedy’s Irish Bar, JMK Civil Engineering, Enterprise, Buckhurst Plant Hire, Sapphire Utility Solutions and Westshield. The day was attended by many supporters from clients and supply chain. A great day was had by all and the golfing competition brought everyone together for such a worthy cause.
Mike Flynn, Director at Network Plus said: “It was an honour to launch our first ever charity golf day in honour of Callum and in support of Macmillan. I can’t thank everyone enough for their efforts into organising such a fantastic event and for those taking part who made it such a special day. Raising this amount of money is an achievement we should all be proud of.”
Cheryl Jenkinson – Corporate Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support added: “The Golf Day that GTM delivered was fabulous and enjoyed by all. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the team at GTM and Network Plus and all the event sponsors as well as the guest from Utilities Supply chain who kindly donated on the day. Together you helped raise an incredible total of £25,211 These funds will be used to provide 785 Macmillan nursing hours, for people just like Callum where our trained clinical nurses can address the all-round needs of people living with cancer supporting them emotionally, financially and medically. Thank you”
