‘From Russia with Hope’ Ride 2019: Our sponsored charity

Mighton is proud to sponsor and support ‘Hope House’ as part of the GM Fundraising Team.

Hope House provides palliative care for children with terminal conditions and support for their families, both on site and in their homes. Hope House receives only nominal support from the government, with over 95% of its £5 million annual operating costs being met by charitable donations and GM Fundraising is proud to be their largest single donor.

The team of industry based, motivated volunteers, who run GM Fundraising, give their time freely and are committed to delivering the highest quality events whilst ensuring that every penny raised reaches the children and families at Hope House.

The charity is best known for spectacular Gala Dinners, annual Golf Days, Long-Distance Cycle Rides and Footy Fives competition, but also have a number of smaller, niche events, which take place throughout the year too. Mike Derham, Chairman – Mighton Products, says, “We’re proud to have been supporting this initiative for several years. The impact that this charity has, makes a real difference to so many people.” The 2019 main event is taking place in June 2019, ‘From Russia With Hope’, and sees a cycling team of 18 ride through 10 countries in 12 days, ending up at Hope House Children’s Hospice. The total tally is 2,730 miles with 34,000 ft of climbing. Mighton and Avia are an official kit sponsor and are part of the ‘ride support’.

The team will be covering in excess of 280 miles each day as they cycle from St Petersburg, Russia, through Finland, into the Arctic Circle, through Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, England and Wales, before returning to their final destination – Hope House.
