Darren has been an avid supporter of Upside, a not-for-profit organisation working in Nepal, since 2010 when he took his first trip there with friend and Upside founder Calum Foulner. In a whirl wind two week trip through some of the most remote locations, Darren was shown the ways in which Upside assists struggling rural communities. By ‘harnessing local knowledge and resources, Upside aims to encourage villages to use their own culture to cultivate a new future.’
In 2013 Dazzling Marine is proud to announce that they have officially taken a more active role in supporting this project. Darren has taken on the role of the ‘100 Roots Club’ manager and will continue to financially support Upside as a member of the ‘100 Roots Club.’
