A Very Happy Hat Trick for DT38 in November

Next month is going to be one of the busiest in our history as we prepare for three fundraising events in the UK.

Firstly we kick off on November 7th with our Football Legends Q&A featuring our Patron Mile Jedinak and a host of other soccer stars, then four days later we head to the renowned London venue York Hall for the DT38 White Collar Boxing Day with Peacock Gym and we wrap up our events on the 21st with our Annual Poker Tournament at Crown Aspinalls London.

All three occasions are set to raise important funds to enable DT38 to continue raising awareness of testicular cancer.
