  • Tylers Friends

The Douch Family are fundraising for Tyler's Friends throughout 2020.

Tyler's Friends are a non-profit charity based in Poole, Dorset supporting bereaved parents to enable them to have the funeral of their wishes for their baby or child helping to ease some of the pain. They also provide memorial headstones for babies. Alongside this, the charity is also very keen to ensure a better working practice between medical and funeral professionals to make sure things run as smoothly as possible for the bereaved parents. ⁠

Lands End 2 John O'Groats - July 6th to July 26th.  A 3-week challenge.

For this year's physical challenge, we got a Douch team together of members of staff & family to complete the Lands End to John O'Groats trek - virtually!  Each person recorded their activity, could be cycling, walking, running or even rowing, tracked on a fitness app.  The activity logs & distance for each week were collected and were added to the map, each week until we reach John O'Groats.  For regular updates - click on our Strava Team summary below!

We are raising money for Tyler's Friends our charity of the year.  Please do support us by way of sponsorship.
