We started working with Duchenne UK as our charity partner in 2017. They’re the leading charity working towards accelerating treatments and finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) – the most common genetic killer of children. In December 2018, having raised more than £200,000 for the charity, we extended our partnership with Duchenne UK until 2020.
The significant fundraising success to date has been a result of our colleagues carrying out a number of personally challenging, fun and inspirational events, including hosting gala dinners, completing the three peaks challenge, running half marathons, holding culinary masterclasses, organising bake sales and participating in Duchenne UK’s flagship event, the Duchenne Dash; a gruelling 24-hour bike ride from London to Paris.Find out more about Duchenne UK
