The Gus Robinson Foundation – Formed in 2014 Supporting Young People on the Pathway to Successful Careers
ANOTHER AMAZING SUCCESS
The 4th Gus Robinson Foundation Annual Ball - held with a Halloween theme - was again a great fund-raiser and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Many thanks to all those who bought tickets for the event and special thanks to the many supporters who donated prizes to enable the night to be such a success.
We again saw over 220 people attend - and the generosity of those people on the night is also greatly appreciated.
Every single penny raised through the Foundation goes back to local youngsters, we have no administration charges or wages to pay thanks to the continued financial support of Gus Robinson Developments via the Thirteen Group.
To date we have donated in excess of £70,000 and our beneficiaries range from those in further education, young entrepreneurs, youngsters with Special Needs, youngsters aiming to achieve in Sports and youngsters embarking on Personal Developments initiatives.
A genuine thank you to all those involved with the planning of the Annual Ball, particularly those who give up a lot of their personal time - it's a Magical team who make the magic happen on the night.
PS - the Power Cut added to the 'spooky' feel of the evening ..... but we promise it wasn't planned!!

Judith Robinson, Foundation Trustee, is chairing the Committee she put together to organise the event and is thrilled it has proved to be so popular. She said: “We are delighted to be able to say our second Ball is again a complete sell-out.

THE GUS ROBINSON FOUNDATION INAUGURAL BALL 21ST MAY 2016
The ultimate aim of the Annual Ball is to raise funds and also raise the profile of the Foundation to enable it to help more youngsters achieve their ambitions and goals. The Inaugural Ball in May 2016 raised over £12,000.
Michael Bretherick, the Foundation’s Chairman, was delighted by the positive response to the first fund-raising event the Foundation organised.
He said: “The trustees were over-whelmed by the volume of support from local businesses and individuals, our ultimate aim is to raise funds for the Foundation, which will crucially be fed back into our community to benefit youngsters from this region. “Most recently we have been able to support many local initiatives and individuals through Foundation funding, and we are focused on collaborating with local businesses to ensure we continue to raise the aspirations of local youngsters.
