(See what we did there?) Our trusty BDM Tim has taken up  yet another challenge all in the name of charity! Tim will be running the Torbay Half Marathon on Sunday 19th June on behalf of Rowcroft Hospice – it’s a charity that’s close to Tim’s heart and provides fantastic care to people facing life-limiting illness. With the 13.1 mile coastal route giving all participants a run for their money, any kind donations will be most appreciated ? please show your support and give what you can. Thank you.

Today, in aid of Rowcroft Hospice’s ‘Go Yellow’ fundraising event, the whole DNA team raised money by enduring another feat of human endurance! – taking turns to row the 60 mile equivalent of Dover to Calais, and back, all in our studio on an Olympic rowing machine. To prove that we’re really going for it we streamed the whole event live, with comments, song requests and more! But it’s not too late, you can still donate to a fantastic cause on our Just Giving page.

Our challenge ran from 7am ? 4.30pm when we reached the magic 60 miles. As of 5pm today, we’ve reached our target so thank you EVERYONE for your contributions! Thanks also to Samatha Barfield at Pure Body for the loan of her rower!

You can still make a difference! Please keep giving. We’ll keep you posted when we have our final fundraising total.

South Devon’s Rowcroft Hospice is an independent local charity, heavily reliant on the funds raised by the community it has served since 1982. As a company we have been supporting Rowcroft through their charitable events for many years so it was a great honour and a privilege to be selected to create the new campaign website and associated printed media for their latest fundraising venture, The Sleep Walk.

The Sleep Walk is a sponsored night walk open to all ladies aged 12 and over and will take place on the 9th of July 2011. There are limited places, so anyone interested in participating should sign-up online now.

Creatively this was an exciting project, as although the branding had already been created around their mascot ‘Barbara the sheep‘, Rowcroft required a look and feel, that was fun and fresh and unique to this event. We were asked to move away from dark skies and glitzy sparkling stars, as this had been done before, so we came up with a theme based around pink stripey pyjamas, pillows and patchwork quilts.

This Movember, the month formerly known as November the men of DNA have decided to donate their faces to raising awareness about prostate cancer. Our donation is our commitment in the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which we know will generate conversation, controversy and laughter.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. One man dies every hour from the disease in the UK. We’re asking you to support our efforts by making a donation to The Prostate Cancer Charity.

To support Rowcroft Hospice’s “Go Yellow” campaign, DNA are asking friends, clients and suppliers to sponsor the team to wear various ridiculous yellow outfits during our very own Yellow Day – Friday 3rd April! We will let you know how we get on and put pictures here on our blog. So if you’d like to see the team transformed into an array of yellow themed characters ranging from Ali G to a chicken, but more importantly contribute to a worthy cause, please dig deep and donate a little something if you can. Whatever we receive in donations, DNA will top up.

Please go to http://www.justgiving.com/BLOGDIRadvertising and support Rowcroft Hospice. Thank you.
