Sue Ryder was our national chosen charity for 2017/2018 with president Sharon Palmer. We were proud to present a cheque for £1500 which is a split of the fuinds raised by the members throughjout the year and the support given by guests to our fundraising events.

E G Carter & Co Ltd were delighted to present a £3000 cheque to Gloucestershire Nightstop along with Gloucester Quays Rotary Club and Davies and Partners Solicitors.

Back in June E G Carter & Co Ltd became the main sponsors for the Gloucester 10k Race, which is organised by Gloucester based solicitors, Davies & Partners and Gloucester Quays Rotary Club.

The two main charities that benefitted from the race is Gloucestershire Young Carers and E G Carter & Co Ltd’s charity of the year, Gloucestershire Nightstop.

After all of the hard work and dedication behind the scenes, the race managed to raise £3000 to help support Gloucestershire Nightstop.

On Monday 30th October, E G Carter & Co Ltd, Gloucester Quays Rotary Club and Davies & Partners presented the cheque to Ciaran Murphy, Project Manager at Gloucestershire Nightstop he said: “We have been so impressed with the effort put in by the team at E G Carter & Co Ltd who, along with the Quays Rotary Club, have raised an amazing amount of money for our organisation. As a small charity, this donation will make a huge positive impact on the service we offer. As we are a local charity all the money raised will go directly to the young people of Gloucestershire.”.

While there Sanduni was able to share her story and how Gloucestershire Nightstop has helped her and her family. Sanduni was living with her mother and her brother. Through no fault of their own the family lost heir accommodation and were forced to make alternative arrangements. Sanduni has been using Nightstop for a number of weeks while the family tries to find somewhere they can live together. Sanduni has a fantastic academic career behind her and hopes to continue with her studies once the situation has settled down again. Nightstop hopes to see Sanduni move back in with her family and move on with her studies soon. Without the help of Nighstop Sanduni and her family would be in a very different situation.
