DQ advocates get active for charity

Money raised for Project 21

Staff at DQ Advocates have been raising cash for charity by getting active.

They took part in various sporting challenges over three days in aid of Project 21, the Isle of Man organisation which supports and empowers people with learning difficulties.

Table football, crazy golf and basketball were among the series of office-themed challenges with participants completing the week with an epic 100-mile cycle challenge.

Isle of Man professional cyclist Tom Mazzone brought a pro-exercise bike into the office as staff, collectively, cycled 100 miles and even managed to complete the distance with time to spare.

The Manxman, who is supported by DQ, is behind a business venture which promotes cycling in a variety of ways, including organising corporate cycling days, arranging fundraising challenges, mentoring, workshops and one-to-one training sessions.

It’s hoped the £300 raised will be used to provide more sporting activities at the charity’s headquarters, Centre 21 in Douglas.
