A Royal Appointment

Outward BoundIn recognition of the DHL UK Foundation’s long standing partnership with The Outward Bound Trust, John Freer, Operations Director ISC; Nicky Donovan, DHL UK Foundation Programme Manager and Carol Morrin, HR Business Partner for DHL Freight, attended a Supporters’ Lunch at Buckingham Palace on 7 December.

The event was a private gathering for just 25 Outward Bound supporters, hosted by HRH The Duke of York.


During the informal event, John, Nicky and Carol heard about the future plans for The Outward Bound Trust and had the opportunity to meet some of the young people who have recently experienced an Outward Bound adventure, along with their fellow supporters.

The DHL UK Foundation have donated over £1 million to The Outward Bound Trust since 2007. Over the last 8 years more than 200 DHL volunteers have mentored over 1000 young people, developing vital transferable skills in an exciting (and often wet!) outdoor learning environment.
