GP Associates, one of the UK’s leading sales companies for the luxury hotel sector is all set to begin one of the most exciting holiday auctions available on line to everyone all in the name of raising money for two exceptional cancer charities. 

The team has been diligently rounding up experiences and hotel stays and all goes online at http://interactivefundraising.co.uk/bidtobeatcancer/ on Wednesday 28th November 2018 at 8:30pm.

They are asking all travel industry professionals to take a look and share the opportunity with friends and family.

At the event, Claudia Winkleman will be hosting the evening, there will be a raffle to win a selection of fantastic prizes, including Lucy Choi shoes and incredible travel getaways. There will be an opportunity to bid for stays at 5 star luxury hotels in London; country retreats in the United Kingdom; city, coastal and country breaks in some of Europe’s most iconic properties. If that doesn’t appeal there are stays at beach resorts in Europe, Indian Ocean, the US, Middle East and the Caribbean! Perhaps you are a golfer or skier, they have that covered too.

The two charities which will benefit from this industry fundraiser are: Maggie’s Centres, which provide free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends with a network of drop in centres throughout the UK.  Ovarian Care Fund with Imperial Health Charity is the second charity which raises money to conduct research into advanced ovarian cancer in women. The research is being led by Professor Christina Fotopoulou, one of the country’s leading experts in ovarian cancer, and her team at Imperial College in west London. The online auction will support ground-breaking new research into this life-threatening condition by funding highly-skilled laboratory staff and essential equipment.

Janine Glasspole, MD of GP Associates and who is spearheading this initiative commented, “Everyone knows someone affected by cancer and I wanted to create a fun concept to help raise funds for these two incredible charities. I am asking all the travel industry to join our quest to create memories by bidding for one of these ‘once in a life time’ hotel stays and helping the fight for cancer by bidding.”
