Shooting Star Children’s Hospices and D&G Group
D&G Group CEO David Nash has been supporting Shooting Star Children’s Hospices since 2007. The support from D&G is extensive with donations from a wide range of events including; an Ashes Cricket Dinner, a Test Match Ball, the Nuts Challenge and more.
Indian Summer Ball
Their most recent event saw 500 colleagues, friends, clients and suppliers attend their Indian Summer Ball at Lord’s – the home of cricket. Hosted by David and Glen Nash, the event celebrated its 11th year and raised over £57,382 for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices. On arrival guests were greeted with champagne, and they were soon warmed up by a raucous game of Heads and Tails re-named Balls Up especially for the night. The fundraiser had guests throwing soft balls at their fellow guests to music in an effort to win an exclusive prize.
Guests were treated to an entertaining Q&A with cricketing legends Angus Fraser, Andrew Strauss, Monty Pannesar and the host himself David Nash.
Karen Sugarman, Director of Fundraising Development introduced Joanne Grimshaw, who spoke bravely, about her role as a parent to a child receiving support from Shooting Star Children’s Hospices. The brilliant Jonny Gould then toiled his way through 12 lots in the Main Auction including the opportunity to be a movie star for a day with Gateway films, a chance to party at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, a box at Ascot and a luxury Dubai holiday.
Since D&G Partners started to support Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, they have raised an incredible £300,000.
“D&G Group are proud to have once again supported Shooting Star Children’s Hospices Children’s Hospice with our annual Ball. The charity goes from strength to strength and touches all our hearts and this is something David and Glen love supporting.” David Nash, CEO D&G Group
