Travel industry news

Choose who gets gunged – and raise money for the FHA!

TTG has teamed up with the Family Holiday Association for some unmissable fundraising fun at next week’s TTG Travel Awards.


MSC Cruises’ executive director Giles Hawke and TTG editor Pippa Jacks are going head-to-head in a fundraising stunt that will see one of them face the fear, the indignity, and downright mess of a gunge tank.


The travel industry is invited to donate a minimum of £5 to see their preferred recipient get gunged, with donations continuing during the ceremony at the Lyceum Theatre and the “loser” announced live on stage.


Hawke, who is an FHA ambassador, said: “The FHA does fantastic work to help struggling families take a much-needed break together, and I hope the chance of seeing me or – preferably – Pippa get gunged raises some serious money towards its anniversary target.”


Jacks said: “We always try to break the mould with the TTG Travel Awards and this year we’ve extended that to our charity partnership too.


"And I’d like to point out that a donation to see Giles gunged is also, in effect, a donation to save ME. And remind TTG readers and awards guests that I love you all very, very much.”

The gunging will take place the day after the awards, and streamed live on Periscope on Twitter, with a bit of luck.

You can donate below, or by sending a simple text message.

To pay £5 to ‪#‎GungeGiles‬ via text (which will go on your next phone bill) text "FHAS002" to the number 70970.
Or to pay £5 towards ‪#‎GungePip‬, text "FHAS001" to 70970.

• Your donation will be processed and administered by the National Funding Scheme, operating as DONATE. For Terms & Conditions, see www.easydonate.org
