Here at DFH, we put people at the heart of everything we do. For this reason, we are passionate about supporting various charities and enjoy raising money for them.
We run a variety of different fundraising events throughout the year, such as Family Fun Days, which involve football matches, face painting and auctions for all to enjoy.
Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK is the world’s biggest independent cancer research organisation and is almost entirely funded through donations and fundraising events. They strive to research all aspects of cancer, and their pioneering work has helped to save millions of lives.

Children in Need Bake-Off
BBC Children in Need
In November 2022, we held our very own Bake-Off and then sold the delicious treats in a Bake Sale. 🎂 🍰 🧁
We have some really impressive bakers at the company and managed to raise £677.53 for the BBC Children in Need.
Great effort from all those involved! 🎂 🍰 🧁
Pretty Tough Mudder
Cancer Research UK
We supported Cancer Research by taking part in the Pretty Tough Mudder. Six of us from the business took part and raised just over £1,400. Hopefully, we will make this an annual event, and even more people from the company will start getting involved!
Manchester Children’s Hospital
In support of Manchester Children’s Hospital, we had a Pride Day in the office on August 26th, charging for face painting and making donations. Our first activity with Manchester Children’s Hospital was around Easter, when we donated over 120 easter eggs and activity packs for the wards within the hospital.
We will be holding events throughout the year, with all proceeds going to the Children’s Hospital.
World Down Syndrome Day
Positive about Down Syndrome and Smiley Faces
21st March 2022 was World Down Syndrome Day, so we put on a bake sale to raise money for Positive about Down Syndrome and Smiley Faces.
We wanted to support these amazing charities to show our devoted supported to one of our employees, Darren, whose son has Down Syndrome. Our bake sale raised just £302 in cash for PADS, and another £424 was donated to Smiley Faces via their Just Giving page. Overall we raised a huge total of £726 to support these charities on World Down Syndrome Day.
