"We have tried to push ourselves outside of any comfort zone that could possibly exist"
Rory Gibson

I’d like to make you aware of a Charity Event that we are hosting in June in hopes that we can gain some additional support and publicity, in order to make this local event as successful as possible raising as much as we can for our chosen Charity – Manchester Mind.


Gibson Hollyhomes are a family run recruitment agency established over 11 years.  As a local Manchester agency that works with both local clients and candidates, when the time came to pick a charity to support in 2018 it was important to us to choose an organisation that supported and actively aimed to help tackle the big issues facing our community. The two main issues we wanted to address were Mental Health and Homelessness, which led us to find our Charity Partner for 2018: Manchester Mind.


Around 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems every year in the UK. Some of us at GHH have had close links to people who have needed extra care at attention at some point in their life.

For our Summer Fundraiser, and in aid of this wonderful organisation, we wanted to do something a little bit special. After much brainstorming one idea shone bright above the rest......On June 23rd our consultants will be donning their best dancing shoes (and as many sequins as humanly possible) and taking to the dance floor for a Strictly Come Dancing-inspired extravaganza!!!

The rules are simple: consultants in their pairs (and one trio) will perform 2 dances - one Latin and one Ballroom - that will last two minutes each. The winning pair will then be selected by our brilliant guest judges and crowned the Gibson Hollyhomes Strictly Winners of 2018.

Based from the Chorlton Irish Centre, we are selling tickets for £10 (all proceeds donated to Manchester Mind via our Just Giving page) Donations are also greatly welcomed.


We start to dance at 7.45pm and expect to be finished for 10.30pm. The event will also be streamed live on Facebook for those unable to attend.

We would like to thank Better Placed, Metis Law, Omni Resource Management and Clyde and Co for supplying the judges.

What's more, our consultants have been given free reign of their music and outfit choices, so this will truly be a night where anything could happen.

We have tried to push ourselves outside of any comfort zone that could possibly exist

As a team we are both excited and terrified to twirl and shimmy the night away in aid of such a great cause and we hope that people will support us and give generously for what will be a fantastic event.


Any support in raising the profile of our event would be greatly appreciated.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you,
The team at Gibson Hollyhomes
