The channel prepares for this year’s charity Gamma Ball Rally

11/09/2015

Gamma is getting ready for its annual charity car rally, Gamma Ball Rally IV, which is taking place over 16th, 17th and 18th September 2015. This year they’ll be joined by a total of 33 cars, each worth no more than £500. They’ll make their way from Gamma’s Newbury head office, to Bruges for their first stop, before making their way to the iconic city of Amsterdam for two nights.

The teams will be tasked with various fun, unique and challenging activities to compete for points along their journey. The final evening will be celebrated with a black tie gala dinner and ‘money can’t buy’ Auction of Promises.

John Haw, Managing Director at Gamma says: “While the Gamma Ball Rally aims to offer a memorable experience for those participating, the main goal is to raise money for charity. This year we’re supporting; Action Through Enterprise and SpecialEffects. We’ve secured some brilliant auction lots from our generous sponsors that we hope will raise lots of money for these two well-deserving causes – the money raised from the rally really does make a difference to them.”

All money raised from Gamma Ball Rally, including team entry fees, auction bids and donations, go straight to Gamma’s nominated charities. With almost £53, 000 already raised ahead of the rally and spaces selling out within just 48 hours, Gamma hopes this year’s rally will raise even more money than previous year’s.

Chris Goodman, Sales Director at Focus Group adds: “This is the 4th time we’ve participated in the Gamma Ball Rally and we’re really excited to be involved in such a great charity event. First and foremost, it’s about raising money for two fantastic causes and we’re proud to be part of it. It’s also a brilliant opportunity to spend an enjoyable few days together and with the other teams – we’re looking forward to meeting everyone at the starting line and seeing all of the weird and wonderful outfits!”
