With our company having been first formed in Essex and taken its trading name from the East London town of Rainham there are long standing links between a sizeable element of our staff and a well-known London football team. As our business has grown and inevitably followed its pursuit of business in other towns and cities within the various industrial heartlands of the UK, staunch support for other regional champions, champions elect and would be champions has led to inter-company rivalries and football related banter is a common topic of communication, particularly on a Monday morning at Rainham. 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.
The charity was formed as a result of Dylan being misdiagnosed. Their vision is to change the way testicular cancer is diagnosed by implementing best practice diagnostic guidelines for patients who present with testicular symptoms and arm future generations of young men with the knowledge about testicular cancer that will enable them to be confident when taking matters into their own hand. Our vision is to support them in every way we can to achieve their goals and also to promote awareness within our own Rainham community and those of our clients, suppliers and fellow contractors.
