Revealing DB3 Charity of the Year 2021

In December, our 2020 Christmas Campaign has raised a fantastic £405 for the charity Action for Children, which has spurred us on to select a DB3 Charity of the Year for 2021.

The pandemic has triggered, what the charity Mind call a mental health emergency, so we decided to support them in their quest to help those affected by it.

Although all DB3 studios will work together to raise funds for Mind, this does not mean we won’t be continuing to fundraise for other national and local charities this year.

Currently our Project Architect Martyn is Running Every Day in January for Samaritans – you can view his progress so far here on his fundraising page.

DB3 Value: Health, Wealth and Wellbeing

DB3 Value: Health, Wealth and Wellbeing

Many more people have been affected by Mental Health since the Covid-19 pandemic commenced, bringing its importance even more so to the forefront.  Alongside raising funds for Mind, we are putting the spotlight on Mental Health this year and raising awareness amongst our staff and stakeholders.

“Health, Wealth and Wellbeing” is one of our five DB3 Values as we seek to proactively respect and care for each other’s wellbeing.  By choosing Mind as our Charity of the Year we aim to extend this DB3 Value out to the wider community and support those affected by Mental Health.

Our Fundraising Plan so far

Our Fundraising Plan so far

We will be doing a number of fundraising events and challenges this year to raise money via our Just Giving Page.

  • In the early hours of the 1st of January, our Marketing Manager Alex commenced her 100 Days Sober challenge and has kept it up so far despite lockdown and homeschooling!
  • Our MD Nathan and Director Tom are both busy training for Struggle Dales Challenge which they will take on in May.
  • Our Project Design Support Technician Dan is planning to compete in the Suffolk Back Yard Ultra challenge in June.
  • Our DB3 team are hoping to complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge this summer.

These are our first set of challenges with more to come in 2021 and we are hoping to run fundraising events and activities in our studios to raise money for Mind, once it is safe to do so.
