Please help us hit £14K charity target

Dear ITAM industry comrades!

Building on our 10K charity total from 2016, in 2017 we’re looking hit £14K raised in total for Sebastian’s Action Trust – a trust that supports the families of seriously ill children.

We intend to hit our target through three events:

  • Our 2017 Excellence Awards Gala Dinner
  • The return of The ITAM Review Go-Karting Cup
  • and finally a five day trek along the Great Wall of China

Please help us hit our £14K charity target by getting involved in one of the events below. Thanks for your continued support!

Great Wall of China Trek

What is it?

A five day hike along the Great Wall of China – voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys. This challenge will take me over watch towers, mountains and through historic battlement stations.

How does it raise money for Charity?

I’m seeking shirt sponsors or direct sponsorship for this five day challenge.

How to get involved?

Please sponsor me using this link or contact me (martin dot thompson at itassetmanagement dot net) to become a shirt sponsor or complete the trek yourself (28th October to 5th November 2017).
