Our first fundraising venture of the year is here – and it’s a big one! Gemma Houghton, Head of Wedding Sales at Harbour International Management/mad adrenaline junkie, will be hurling herself out of a plane at 15,000 feet on Saturday the 3rd of March. Look out below!
So, why a skydive? We’ll let Gemma explain:
“Having worked and grown with this evolving and ever expanding hotel brand for nearly 5 years, I wanted to do something that was entirely out of my comfort zone. I also wanted to support a very worthwhile cause, that has a connection to the hospitality industry and Room to Reward is the perfect fit.
I also needed the pressure of having to actually go through with it, because it’s for charity!”
We like to think of it as motivation rather than pressure, but whatever gets you in the plane Gemma!
Like all our fundraising heroes, we are enormously grateful to Gemma for her efforts.
In the coming months, we will be launching a new website and – more importantly – a new booking and nomination system. This is essential for us as we grow as a charity and look to recognise and say ‘thank you’ to more and more of the inspirational Hidden Heroes Room to Reward was created to give back to. All funds raised in support of Gemma’s amazing/mad adventure will go towards this project.

Once again, that all-important date is Saturday 3rd of March – keep your eyes on the skies!
