The MyLocalNews team are delighted to be sponsoring a week of celebrations in aid of Dacorum homeless charity DENS.
DENS are inviting the people of Dacorum to bring their friends, family and colleagues together for a special week of celebrations this June.
Go Yellow for DENS Week takes place between June 21 and June 27 and is a fantastic opportunity for the community to get creative and have fun, while also helping to raise awareness of the charity and the vital services it provides to those most vulnerable within the borough.
Local residents, businesses, venues, schools and community groups are all encouraged to take part in the campaign by pledging to do something yellow during the week and making a suggested donation of £1 per person to DENS.
Nik Allen, editor-in-chief at MyLocalNews, is proud to be supporting the campaign.
He said: “DENS is a charity close to our heart who we have worked closely with for many years. They do so much for the community and have continued to do so throughout COVID, providing support for the vulnerable across Dacorum.
“We as a team are delighted to be the official sponsors of Go Yellow Week and can’t wait to see the community come together to support families and individuals across the borough.”
The funds raised from Go Yellow Week will help towards families and individuals across Dacorum facing homelessness, poverty and social exclusion to take the next positive step in their lives.
During the campaign, DENS will have a strong presence at Hemel Hempstead’s iconic The Marlowes shopping centre, which recently chose DENS as its Charity of the Year.
Nicky Maxwell-Braithwaite, community & events fundraising manager at DENS, said: “After what has been a tough year for everyone, it’s so encouraging to see the community come together for Go Yellow Week. The response so far has been incredibly positive and we’re really excited to see all the creative ways in which the people of Dacorum will be celebrating with DENS.”
