Proud to have raised over £25k for local children’s charity

Worcester-based technology company Open GI has completed a successful year of fundraising and sponsorship, raising £25,885 for children’s charity New Hope.

Since selecting New Hope to be its chosen charity, employees at Open GI have been busy finding ways to raise funds by taking part in sky dives, numerous sporting events, bake sales, fancy dress-up days, raffles and more. New Hope, which was founded in 2010 by the inspirational Jean Wilson, MBE, exists to provide specialist respite care to children with disabilities and complex healthcare needs. Its aim is to provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment for all children to play, learn and develop freely.

“Since being chosen as Open GI’s charity of the year, we’ve been excited to follow their updates and fundraising events. As a small charity, we rely on both private and corporate donations so we would like to thank everyone at Open GI for selecting New Hope for 2017, and their generosity and dedication over the last 12 months. The donation will go a long way to improving the services we can offer and the lives of the children we help in Worcester.”

Jean Wilson, Founder of New Hope, said:

“Each year we’re delighted to be able to give back to our local community and provide support for worthy causes through many fundraising and volunteering activities. As such, we are thrilled to have raised a considerable amount for New Hope throughout last year’s fundraising. As we look forward to this year, we are eager to begin another year of activities to raise funds for another local charity.”
