What they say
Jazz Bhatti, Partnership Development Manager, Saints Foundation
“Saints Foundation have formed a successful and unique partnership with D&G over the past two years. D&G have continually delivered a professional service and have fully embraced the ethos of our charity.
Saints Foundation are extremely selective with the partners that we choose to work with and always ensure that we exhaust the market to find the right fit. D&G over exceeded our expectations and helped the charity to maximise the profits for the charity. D&G initially came on board to offer a match day service, however due to their exceptional service they were invited to deliver an auction at both our charity dinner and Southampton FC’s Player Awards.
All surplus targets have been achieved across these events and we are excited about continuing our partnership in the future and raise funds to help sustain our work in the local community.”
Alex Rennie, Head of Corporate Engagement, Shooting Star Chase
“We are incredibly grateful to D&G Group for their ongoing fundraising efforts for Shooting Star Chase. Their achievements include completing the London Marathon, our hospice to hospice bike ride and the Nuts Challenge whilst every year organising their
annual fundraising dinner for Shooting Star Chase. Shooting Star Chase is a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families and last year’s event raised over £40,000 which could fund a paediatric palliative care nurse for one year.”
