DTM Legal took to the muddy banks of the River Dee for the third year running to take part in the Chester Dragon Boat Race.
Team DeTerMination competed against twenty one other teams in an effort to raise a generous amount for their charity of the year, Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
With family and friends cheering on the valiant crew, the team won the first round in style!
In Round 2, Team DeTermination faced tough competitors and came in at 2nd place.
By Round 3, the crew gave it their all but sadly did not make it to the Grand Final. There were still smiles all round though as it was a great day, raising money for a worthy cause!
DTM Legal has chosen Alder Hey Children’s Charity as its charity of the year for 2017 in recognition of the life-saving work that is carried out there.
Alder Hey has touched the lives of many people throughout the company including Jim Morris, a partner at DTM Legal. Jim’s son, James, was treated at Alder Hey for pneumonia and thoracic empyema, a life-threatening condition which infected his lung membranes leading to the partial collapse of his lungs. The condition is very rare in young children but the clinicians at Alder Hey were able to diagnose James swiftly.
Allan Eves from Alder Hey Children’s Charity said: “We are really grateful to DTM Legal and all their staff for their support. Donations towards our new ‘Institute in the Park’ are allowing Alder Hey to develop better medicines and treatments and significantly contribute to the future health and wellbeing of children right across the globe.
“On behalf of Alder Hey Children’s Charity I would like to say thank you to everyone at DTM Legal. With their help, we can build a better future for children and young people everywhere.”
