Group Three Peaks Challenge – In May 2015, a team of 16 DHA staff members embarked on the Three Peak Challenge, climbing the three highest mountains in Britain. The team raised over £5,000 for Shine Cancer Support and in memory of their dear friend and colleague Harriet Burr who died from cancer earlier this year.

Arch de Arc – DHA was pleased to be the main sponsor for a team of nine hardy cyclists who rode from Marble Arch to the Arc de Triomphe in aid of the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. They cycled over 400km in 4 days via Portsmouth and Caen. Despite tired legs the team arrived safely and raised over £5,000. Congratulations for a magnificent achievement!
Mongol Rally – DHA Planning & DHA Transport have sponsored client Marc Hawkins of Hawkspare in the Mongol Rally. Driving a 1 litre Fiat Cinquecento, plastered in DHA graphics Marc completed the 10,782 mile journey in just under 5 weeks. He has raised over £1,000 for the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation.
