Upcoming events

Gamma Ball Rally

Gamma Ball Rally

Date: Wednesday 18th September – Friday 20th September
Venue: Starting in Lille

The wheels are in motion here at Gamma HQ ahead of the 2019 Gamma Ball Rally and this year promises to be better than ever!
This year’s route will take us from France to Germany, taking place over the 18th, 19th and 20th of September starting in Lille. We will travel through Belgium, Luxembourg, Zurich and finish in Munich for the gala dinner and charity auction. As always, there will be plenty of entertainment, fun and classic rally activities planned along the way.

Why we’re doing it
While the Gamma Ball Rally aims to offer an unforgettable experience, the main goal is to raise money for two well-deserving charities – Action Through Enterprise and SpecialEffect. The 2018 rally took the total amount raised in Gamma Ball history to £500,000 and this year we want to really raise the bar again in terms of our charity fundraising.

Bring back the rally spirit
One of the most fun and exciting parts of the rally is seeing the effort that many of the teams go to when choosing their themes and fancy dress. We want to encourage each team to be as creative and fun as possible for this year’s rally!

We can’t wait to see you there!

MTB or Road 2018 – 7th June 2018

MTB or Road 2018

Date: Thursday 7th June 2018
Venue: Hungerford Rugby Club

Now in its 5th year Gamma’s annual MTBorRoad event took place in Hungerford. 45 cyclists met at Hungerford Rugby Club for breakfast and a safety briefing fully energised for the cycle challenge ahead before heading out to see what Hungerford had to offer.

Due to the success of previous years Gamma continued with a road and a mountain bike course, a popular format as it provides much more variety for participants. There were four tracks in total, two routes for the road cyclists (38 and 61 miles) and two routes for the mountain bikers (24 mile and 30miles), with all groups having to tackle an ascent of at least 2000ft.

After a quick spot of lunch at the Crown Inn, Upton the groups were off again – with only some of them managing to escape the rain. The day finished back at the rugby club with a (much needed!) BBQ which provided a great opportunity for everyone to catch up.

Although this event offers a fun day out for Gamma’s Channel Partners and fellow cycling enthusiasts it’s also about raising money for Gamma’s nominated charities Action Through Enterprise, changing the lives of children and adults living in the poorest parts of Ghana and SpecialEffect, who put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games.
