For over 10 years the Drive DeVilbiss UK group have proudly supported Forget Me Not Childrens' Hospice in Huddersfield and over this time we have donated almost £50,000 to help support this wonderful charity and the families receiving support from the Forget Me Not team.

For 2023, a team of 17 gallant and brave Drive staff have signed up to the Forget Me Not Dragon Boat Race to compete in this exciting and fun challenge at Pugneys Country Park, Wakefield on 23rd September. For this highly competitive challenge they will be paddling a dragon decorated boat, complete with a Drummer to keep the rhythm.

We are hoping to raise as much money as possible to further support the Forget Me Not Children's Hospice and the wonderful work that they do. If you would like to sponsor our team, the link to donate is below and we would be very grateful.
