drp complete pledge to undertake 35 CSR projects in 35th year ahead of schedule

The drpteam have completed their pledge to undertake and complete 35 CSR projects in their 35th year 2 months ahead of schedule. Dale Parmenter, Group CEO announced at the beginning of 2015 that team members from across the business would take on the task marking their 35th Anniversary which was celebrated in June this year at West Midlands Safari Park. The challenges ranged from abseiling the ArcelorMittal tower for charity Springboard UK and hosting and sponsoring the YSS  Young Carer’s Conference to regularly preparing and serving breakfast at a local homeless shelter.

Some of the larger CSR projects included the great rickshaw rally which saw the drpteam use nothing but pedal power for 130 miles on a refurbished rickshaw from their Covent Garden office to the main studios in Hartlebury raising over £4,000 for charity MIMN (Meetings Industry Meeting Needs). The Ergo challenge marked number 30 of the 35th CSR projects in which the drpteam rowed the mammoth distance of over 1million metres in just 24 hours raising £1,400 for charity MIMN.   

drp held their 35th Anniversary celebration, which saw over 950 guests including the drpteam, friends and clients attend the day and night extravaganza, complete with park tours, workshops, gala dinner, live production show, choir, fireworks and production to rival the main stage at Glastonbury. It was announced on the day that drp’s support and help on various projects with Charity Springboard UK   over the years has raised over £1million pounds.  

Group CEO Dale Parmenter commented on the accomplishment, “This is such a huge achievement for the entire team, the task was certainly not an easy one but to mark our 35th year by hopefully making a difference has been fantastic. The projects the team have delivered are close to our hearts and CSR has been and will continue to be at the forefront of the business.”
