Competition Winners - Dinnington Comprehensive School

    £2000 Christmas Prize Winners return from Canada ...

    Our old friends Dinnington Comprehensive School have returned from their recent sports tour to Canada. The school ran an amazing fund raising scheme last year in order to raise the 20k needed for the tour. The tour leader and teacher Dana Abdulkarim even got a few big named celebrities in on the act via Twitter, with the likes of Michael Owen and Dame Kelly Holmes retweeting Dana's fundraising efforts.

    Whilst doing what they do best, fund raising, Dinnington received a surprise call from us at Teamlink letting them know they had won our £2000 Christmas Prize Draw which took them to their 20k total.

    “All the Canada sports tour squad have been working hard for this tour and finding out by video and phone call whilst in a supermarket bag packing to raise funds that we won the Christmas prize draw was SO incredible - this win means we've now raised our target of 20k! Thanks to Teamlink we can afford to make this trip what the students at DCS deserve. I couldn't be more appreciative! We plan on spending the money specifically to pay for the tour kit and holdall bags. A big thanks for your festive Christmas boost.”

    All their effort seems to have paid off as they recently returned from the tour with glowing praise for the destination and their overall touring experience. Dinnington enjoyed our Le Grande Quatre Canada tour which takes in four major locations; Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Niagara Falls.

    "Quite simply Teamlink organised the perfect tour for our students at Dinnington. This really was a dream destination and the experiences we shared will long stay with Team 'CBA'. From the initial planning right to the return flight home the care afforded to us was outstanding, the attention to detail comforting and the tour special for all involved. Teamlink can consider themselves honorary Dinnington members! Some students had never been out of their county let alone on a plane, this will stay with them forever and perhaps make them braver in exploring the world around them. Thanks :)"
