555 Challenge

We are a multi-disciplinary construction company based in Northern Ireland working across the UK and Ireland.  Our people are at the core of everything we do within Dowds Group which is why we have set our employees this challenge, not only to help them through this current situation but also to raise a bit of money for charity.

Our Challenge

We have four teams who will each have to complete the circuit, starting at our Ballymoney office and finishing at our London office (via our Belfast office), clocking up a staggering 555 miles per team- this is not literal of course!

Our teams will have cyclists, runners and walkers all trying to help them reach the finish line and for every mile they complete, they donate £1. With having our four teams each reaching 555 miles, we could reach over £2000 from these miles alone. Dowds Group will be matching anything that the employees raise so our overall aim is to reach the £5k mark.

All money raised will be evenly split amongst our four chosen charities which are:
Marie Curie
Kenya Missionary Work
Tiny Life

At this time especially, charities are struggling to raise vital funds to helps those in need. If we can help ease the pressure even slightly, we will be delighted!

Thank you for all donations!
