GMAVSG would like to take this opportunity to thank all those firms and individuals who have, and still do, organise fundraising events for the group. We would also especially thank those who have raised or donated money in memory of their loved ones.

Run for Joanie Mike Barton, family and friends raised a fantastic £4,035 in the Manchester 10K run in memory of Mike’s wife Joan, who sadly died from mesothelioma.

Gordon Marriott Memorial Golf Day 2013 For a number of years now, Chris and Natalie Hazelhurst have organised a fundraising memorial golf day, in memory of Natalie’s dad Gordon, who sadly died from mesothelioma in 2010. This year’s event raised a staggering £14,500 for Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group. The event is a credit to Chris and Natalie who put in an enormous amount of work into organising such a successful day and a fitting tribute to Gordon.
