The Cox family, the founders of DCE Group Ltd, are privileged to have grown a successful business over the last 30 years. It’s always been their aim to give something back to the community, and Dave Cox (Chairman) raises thousands of pounds for charity every year through his various initiatives.
Generosity is one of the many family values that you’ll recognise if you work for, or with, the company, and we (the team) are proud to contribute our time and our energy to any of the charity fundraisers that Dave organises.
LEJOG was conceptualised in the summer 2017, to beat the bulge whilst raising money for Dreams Come True – our chosen Charity. Some of us have been in training, some of us not – but we’re all up for pedalling with passion to raise some money for this worthy cause. We aim to cover 140km a day over 10 days – the equivalent of cycling from Lands End to John o Groats, on exercise bicycles that have been set up in the office.
Dreams Come True is a UK children’s charity. Their mission is quite simply to enrich the lives of children, and young people, with serious and life-limiting conditions by making their dreams come true. Over the last 25 years they have fulfilled dreams for more than 5,000 children and young people as well as their friends, family and carers.
Each dream is unique. Some want to meet their idol or favourite Disney character while others want to visit their grandparents abroad, ride a unicorn, swim with dolphins or work on a fashion magazine. Many want help with their everyday lives and Dreams Come True is delighted to provide vital sensory equipment, wheelchairs or specially adapted bicycles as well.
DCE Group Ltd, were touched by the vision of the team at Dreams Come True and have raised over £55,000 for the charity in the time we’ve been supporting them.
Our latest initiative LEJoG is exciting, useful in terms of us getting fit and focussed for 2018, and we’re hoping to smash our target of £3,000 by the end of the second week.
