DAAS and DVG @ Recovery Games 2018

Posted on: 29 Aug 2018

This was the 5th running of The Recovery Games, a fun filled events to both celebrate the Recovery Journey of thousands of people but also to remember those people in recovery who have died over the last year.


The DAAS office needs to be staffed throughout the day so we made a team with our friends from DVG-HQ and headed off to Doncaster to join teams from around the country. Each team had to be 8 members+  and there was around 14 different activities, from the sedate archery to the craziness of elastic powered Hungry Hungry hippos. The DAAS/DVG-HQ  team did particularly well in the 4 man canoe, Donkey Derby, Wrecking Ball and Archery.


(Luckily) we didn’t make it to the final which would have seen us facing off in an obstacle relay race against some strong young teams who were lightningly quick. It was great to see all 3 teams in the final to be predominantly clients and not staff teams.


The staff who had to remain the office were all very jealous of our day of fun  and are planning their assault on the 6th Recovery Games.
