DPS Giving back:
At Durham Pallet, the quality of life for the people who live in the communities we serve is very important to us. We are always looking for fun and meaningful ways to share our “everyone has eyes, has a soul” message with the community.
So, keeping true to our focus we hold internal raffles with our staff and donate the proceeds to a person or organisation we feel could benefit the most from it
Here are some examples of our 2018/2019 charitable contributions
