GM Developments are proud to support Maggie’s Cancer Care based at The Royal Marsden. Maggie’s is a charity founded by Maggie and Charles Jencks. Using her own experience of living with Cancer and wanting to create a new type of care for those diagnosed with cancer and their families the charity now has centres around the UK providing support and professional help covering treatment side effects, stress and money worries amongst other things.
To quote Maggie Jencks “Above all what matters most is not to lose the joy of living in the fear of dying”
We sponsored the centres Christmas Party in December 2019 and the official opening by the charity’s President HRH The Duchess of Cornwall in February 2020 and were lucky enough to be invited to the event.
We are also sponsoring the Surrey Cycle Ride around the Surrey Hills that has been postponed to October 2020 due to Covid 19. The upside is it will give our team of riders more time to train for either the 80 or 40 mile route.

We have also made another donation to the The Red Rubber Ball’s 100 Club that works with young children in Kenya. Our donation will help them open more clubs in other areas including rural villages.
The project keeps young kids off the streets of Nairobi in the Kibera slums. We teach them to ride a bike, how to maintain their bikes, then take them on rides at weekends and in school holidays.
The only rule is that children must attend school if they are to join the club.
Attendance has increased; children have formed new friends; they are staying out of trouble and away from drugs, gangs, glue sniffing, crime etc. They are learning new skills, have learned to share and work together. And they’re having fun.

GM Developments are proud to be a part of the Red Rubber Ball Foundation’s 100 Club, which gives children and community leaders in the poorest parts of Kenya the chance to escape poverty. Donations from the 100 Club have helped to cover all travel, accommodation and venue costs for the foundation’s 2014 ‘Anything is Possible’ workshop, with 62 sponsored children in Nairobi, and enabled 15 young Kenyans to take part in ‘Mpango Kiongozi’ – the Leaders Challenge – to climb Kilimanjaro. Since 2016, The 100 Club has allowed the foundation to build a fund to offer interest-free, but repayable, student loans so that sponsored students can continue their studies on to university and college.
Being born in Kenya Chris Frome was interested in what the foundation are doing, especially the cycle club and he has been given one of their jerseys. We are told he is delighted with it.
