IAS Charitable Cause 2019 - The Malcolm Gunter Foundation

In May 2017 our dear friend Malcolm Gunter was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease – a most devastating and misunderstood condition. Just 12 months later, in May 2018 Malcolm passed away.

Malcolm was a founding partner of Williams Gunter Hardwick in Bristol leading the Industrial team.  He was incredibly well known and respected across all sectors throughout the South West but especially in the Shed Market.  He previously held the positions of IAS Western Branch Chairman and committee member. Malcolm was also heavily involved in the Bristol Property Agents Association (BPAA) and sadly was due to be President in 2019.    

Many of you will have known Malcolm, and maybe also his wife Penny and daughter Lottie, and many of you will have come across Malcolm during his long career in property. Following his diagnosis Malcolm and his family approached their situation with great bravery and fortitude, but inevitably as the condition developed their circumstances and needs changed.

The Foundation was originally established to assist and support them and others in their situation, and fund further research into MND. The Foundation will now continue in Malcolm’s memory. The Foundation has 4 clear aims: -

Specialist Medical Care - to provide financial assistance to sufferers of MND to include specialist medical (including equipment) or nursing care

Family Support - to meet costs associated with practical, emotional or other support for Malcolm’s family

Support other MND Sufferers - to provide like support to other sufferers of MND and their families

Grants for Research - to make grants to charities involved in the field of research into MND or the support of people suffering from MND or their families
