GGR supports GBC Open Day 2005

Equality Rights group GGR will be making a maximum effort over a period of 5 days and two locations in support of GBC Open Day 2005 (an annual community-wide event to collect money for a variety of Charities in Gibraltar organised by the local radio and tv station) “come rain or shine!” with a beautifully made Wishing Well and for that we want to especially thank our friends Pete, Reg and Keith for their generous help. We also thank the management of both the ICC and Morrison’s for their kind agreement for us to be able to use their space. Furthermore, we are thankful to Us For Toys for their donation of a toy to be raffled along another toy item donated by GGR alongside the Well. The group also says it is willing to auction the Wishing Well itself to any business, shop, group or individual with the sale going to the highest bidder who reaches or tops the reserve price with the idea being that the proceeds will go to the Open Day funds.

Sandra Poveda, Social Coordinator for the group announced that they will be at the ICC Building on 3rd, 10th, 12th and 14th December, with a presence at Morrison’s Supermarket on 12th and 13th December.

“Members of the public will be able to “make a wish” at the Wishing Well and for every donation of £1 will be automatically entered into a toy raffle which will be drawn in the GBC studios on the night of the 14th. There are many groups and individuals in the Gibraltar community who work very hard during the year to care for and help others, and the least we can do is to help their selfless year-round work through the Open Day event and to wish all of Gibraltar a very happy Christmas and New Year and thank GBC itself for their annual efforts for the community,” Ms Poveda said.
