D&G Group Former Middlesex Cricketer, David Nash, has just passed an incredible milestone, having raised over £20million for charity since starting his business in 2010.
D&G Group, founded 8 years ago by David and his brother, Glen, helps brands and charities raise an outstanding amount of money, contributing to causes across the UK and Europe.
Suffering from mental health issues, David stepped away from his world-class cricket career to pursue a more philanthropic path. After securing his first major client, he embarked on a mission to help brands and charities raise as much as he could through world-class events & sports days; using his network and knowledge to support those in need. David also teamed up with sporting legends Lewis Moody MBE & Graham Gooch OBE, who are active ambassadors for his business.
Now approaching 2019, David and his team have raised more money for charitable organisations than they ever dreamed, growing his business from a spare bedroom to a 30 strong team, all with the same goal of driving fundraising to a new level. Earlier this year, David was invited to Buckingham Palace to acknowledge his contribution to the charity sector, further affirming his dedication to supporting those in need.
“It was my Testimonial year at Middlesex Cricket Club that I encountered mental health issues, suffering from anxiety and depression. There were days when I even struggled to perform on the cricket ground and knew that a life of sport, after reaching the pinnacle of my career, wasn’t for me. I was then inspired by working with Shooting Star Chase, a local children’s hospice in Hampton and that led me to my bright idea of wanting to help fundraise on a corporate level.” David Nash
