GCA Altium Manchester raises over £50,000 for OnSide in 2019

Throughout 2019, GCA Altium’s Manchester team has been busy raising money for OnSide, the charity which provides young people in deprived areas with a quality, safe and affordable place to socialise and learn new skills.

The year included two major inaugural events with our friends within the local M&A community, kicking off with the GCA darts tournament in March, followed by our football tournament held in October. A series of initiatives in the office throughout the year have helped to supplement event based fundraisers, including dress down Fridays, fantasy football, cake sales, introducing our Friday drinks trolley and the donation of Christmas gifts in place of Secret Santa. It’s amazing we get any deals done!!

To top this off, we were able to donate our old laptops and mobile phones to OnSide which are now in use across various of the charity’s youth zones.

All in, the team has raised in excess of £50,000 for OnSide in 2019 and we hope to build on this in 2020 and are planning a number of fundraisers involving some of our more senior members of the team so please watch this space!
