PERFECT weather, a soap star and a chance to emulate England’s World Cup heroes in a penalty shoot out made the family fun day this summer to mark Print Search – part of the DCB group’s – tenth anniversary one to remember.
Simon Gregson, who plays Steve McDonald in Coronation Street was the guest star, on a day that raised more than £1200 for the Forever Manchester charity.
That figure and that total will serve to cement a relationship that we intend to grow and nuture through the coming years.
Forever Manchester has delivered over £36 million to local communities across Greater Manchester since being established in 1989. They fund and support activities to help young people, old people, disabled people as well as homelessness, sports, environment, education and cancer support projects.
At DCB we have a strong history with fundraising, since starting up and have raised an impressive £12,730 for various good national causes. DCB group managing director Victoria Hart sees the relationship as a key part of what the company is and what it stands for.
“We really do believe in giving back where we can. What better way to do that as a company with its roots in Manchester than offering our support to Forever Manchester a charity that is local, makes a difference and demonstrates community spirit. In short, we wanted to support Charity… The Mancunian way.”
The tenth anniversary celebrations provide us with the perfect opportunity to celebrate our presence in the city and consolidate our fundraising efforts by helping a local charity that can support a wide range of projects where our staff and customers live.
Victoria added: “We’re looking forward to working with Forever Manchester. It’s the 10th anniversary of the DCB Group and, to commemorate the atrocity at Manchester Arena we felt it was appropriate to support a charity that’s really local and makes a difference and demonstrates community spirit. “
A spokesman for Forever Manchester said:
“We are delighted to welcome DCB Group to the Forever Manchester Family.”
