Throughout 2013 several members of the planitgreen™ team, at DMC, will be participating in a variety of different charity events to raise money for Starlight children’s charity. From a 9 day trek in Peru to a football match down the road near Heathrow, the planitgreen™ team are committed to going the extra mile for charity.

Starlight brightens the lives of terminally ill children by granting them a once in a lifetime wish but to do this they need funding. DMC, a Copier Sales, and Solutions Company based in Croydon, already support Starlight through donating 25p per planitgreen™ toner sold to help grant children’s wishes.

All Starlight’s activities are aimed at distracting children from the pain, fear, and isolation that is often felt because of an ongoing illness. Any money given goes towards granting these children’s once in a lifetime wish and entertaining a further 500,000 hospitalised children nationwide.

Eight members of the planitgreen™ team, at DMC, will be participating in the RICOH Cup on the 10th of March. For every goal they score, DMC will donate £5 to Starlight and if the planitgreen™ team win the match, the money will be doubled. The team are aiming to raise £250 through goal scoring.

The Giving continues

Back in October 2012, three members of Staff at DMC ran the Windsor half marathon raising a total of £1150 for the Starlight Foundation and are committed to raising more. Later on this year, Damian, another member of the team, will be going on a 9 day trek from Choquequirao to Machu Picchu in Peru to raise money for the cause and in July another staff member will be participating in a 114 mile bike ride around Yorkshire.

planitgreen™ team member James will be participating in the one of the toughest events on the planet, the Tough Mudder event. This is a hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.
