Dura team runs Oxford Half Marathon in support of Helen & Douglas House Hospice

Two members of staff from Dura, innovators in workshop and garage furniture, recently took part in the Oxford Half Marathon to raise over £420 for Helen & Douglas House, the children’s and young adults’ hospice.


Dura are long-term supporters of Helen & Douglas House, and will also be taking part in the Santa Run also organised by the charity in December. Dura staff voted for Helen & Douglas House as their chosen charity three years ago, and has so far donated an amazing £45,000 to help children and young adults with life-limiting illnesses.


Dominic Wishlade, from Dura, said "We are very privileged to be able to support Helen and Douglas House and therefore the people they care for. It has been eye opening to see the incredible work and services that the team provide. ”


Suzi Attree, Corporate Account Manager at Helen & Douglas House, said: "Dura have been absolutely wonderful in their generosity and long-term support for Helen & Douglas House, which has helped us to provide long-term support for families who need it most throughout Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and 5 other counties. It’s thanks to companies like them that families don’t have to face the unthinkable alone".
