Winston's Wish is a charity which started locally, but now operates nationally. GIN had supported them since the start and our total giving has now reached £22,600, raised from various events covering music events to swimming, running, cycling and even iron man achievements. Well done to all of those involved. The Winston's Wish team really value our support and look forward to us taking part in other challenges.

Gloucestershire Independent Network is known for being a friendly networking group with a sense of fun. This was clearly shown when visitor Sam Parrent visited us at Hatherly Manor last week to talk about his new business renting out crazy carts for parties and events. Sam brought one of his electric carts along and once he had done a demonstration, it was decided that a few timed races between members would be in order. You can see from the photos that this brought out a healthy competitive streak in all of us. Whatever your business, you'll receive a warm welcome at GIN.

Welcome to 2017: another great prospective year of business and GIN networking ahead. It was a great way to finish 2016 with just over 1 million pounds of confirmed business passed amongst the 30 strong members of the group in the last 12 months. Getting up early clearly works! This figure has grown year on year in our seven years of meeting so here's to another million plus in 2017.
