In 2016 we were fortunate enough to be put in touch with Maidstone-based architect firm, gdm architects to become their charity.

During that time, they have run tuck shops, held football tournaments, cycled a hundred miles, worn silly jumpers, and sold raffle tickets for us, all in the name of raising funds for us. If that weren’t enough, they were also one of the main sponsors for our #kayakforblackthorn Alps adventure (, even though they thought that our fundraiser, Susie, was slightly crazy.

In total, they contributed a staggering £3055.86 and we would like to say a big thank you to gdm architects, not only for all their support but for being such fun to work with!
