In 2016 the UK division of DLL selected the Down’s Syndrome Association as their Charity of the Year. We were thrilled when we were able to continue the partnership for a second year.
As our time as their Charity of the Year comes to an end we’d like to say a very big thank you for all their enthusiasm and support and the amazing total that they have raised for our WorkFit programme….over £23,000
The team at DLL Group have been extraordinarily generous with their time and energy over the last two years, raising funds through a variety of events and challenges, including Golf Days and the Great DLL Challenge.
The Great DLL Challenge (which members of the team completed in 2016 and 2017) involves a 300km bike ride from Watford to Eindhoven, where the headquarters of the DLL group are based. Braving particularly atrocious conditions in October 2017 the avid cyclists made it to Eindhoven with only one puncture between them.
DLL Group’s commitment to WorkFit has also been demonstrated by the company employing a WorkFit candidate at their Watford office who now works there three days a week and has inspired all the staff with her ‘positive and bright attitude.’
We’d like to thank all the staff at DLL who made our partnership such a success. A special thank you goes to Karen Kidd, Facilities Manager and Seb Farina, Marketing Manager who have worked tirelessly to support the DSA.
