Every year we donate tickets to Circus Starr as it comes to Hereford bringing joy to disadvantaged children & families across the UK through the magical art of circus performance.

It’s not about the success of the business, it’s about what they do with their success.

The DM Lab have always done what they can to support clubs and events in the local community. As far back aswhen the business started. They have a successful micro business, run by Marketing Director Chris and Creative Director Dale. They have learned many valuable lessons along the way. They’ve also learned that a little help goes a long way. No more so than their partnerships and sponsorships with clubs, organisations and events locally.

Nothing gives them more satisfaction than helping others and helping them to succeed. The DM Lab’s goal is to help raise the profile of these clubs to the highest level they can.

It’s The DM Lab’s desire for the county’s clubs, organisations and events to be the best they can be that drives them. Not for profit or advertising.

Despite their size, The DM Lab do everything in their power (and budget) to help and give back to the local community.

Outside of work, the team take part in events and where possible raise money. Annual events such as:

St Michael’s Hospice Run Hereford & the Wheelie Big Cycle

Swimathon for Cancer Research UK

Stand up to Cancer Gameathon

Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day

Pink Shirt Day for Breast Cancer Awareness

Movember

Provided a designed and printed programme for the Adelaide Law Foundation Charity Football Match

Their sponsorships included The Herefordshire Business Awards and the Sunshine Radio Pride Awards after winning at both ceremonies last year.

The DM Lab have been recognised for these efforts at the Midlands Business Awards 2019. They are finalists is the ‘Corporate Commitment to the Community’ award. However, they will know if they have been successful in March 2019. They will continue to support all our current clubs, community and charity events and are always looking for more opportunities.
