The weather definitely wasn’t on our side, but Team DATS braved the elements on Sunday 28th July to raise funds for St Rocco’s.
Well done to a number of DATS employees, friends and family who got a team together to take part in this year’s St Rocco’s Dragon Boat Race, raising funds for this fantastic local hospice.
A total of twelve teams took part in the event which took place at Warrington Sailing Club. Despite most of the crew having never stepped foot into a Dragon Boat before, we were thrilled to win two out of our three races – even without a full boat! We also placed sixth overall, out of the twelve teams.
St Rocco’s Hospice provides invaluable support for terminally ill patients and their families. DATS was pleased to be able to raise in the region of £700 for the charity and would like to thank everyone who has supported us to make this possible.

If you would like to sponsor us for this event, you can do via our Just Giving page here.
Please be reassured that during this unsettling time, DATS is committed to continuing to partner with our clients, candidates and contractors as usual. Our business is open and we’re taking every precautionary measure to ensure the health and well being of our...
