After a long association with Help for Heroes it was time to refresh our support and fund raising activities with the appointment of a new Charity of the Year 2020. It was through the pursuit of all things West Ham United within our Head Office that the charity DT38 first came to prominence, in particular we were introduced to a lady by the name of Tracy Tombides who, after the loss of her son Dylan to testicular cancer, formed DT38 in his name with the sole aim of avoiding preventable deaths through the spread of information and self-awareness surrounding the condition. Unfortunately the launch of our association has coincided with a huge down turn in fund raising events due to the Global Pandemic that has resulted from COVID19 and DT38 like many other charities has suffered enormously. On April 18th – six years to the day since Dylan Tombides left us – the Foundation launched the 3.80 Funding Appeal to reduce the impact on the charity caused by Covid-19.
Through the 3.80 Funding Appeal, we are asking if you can help DT38 and men and boys everywhere by making a donation of £3.80. Rainham has ‘kicked off’ with a suitably fitting multiple of 3.80 being donated.
