Together with 3 other founding Trustees he formed Zion Projects in 2003 to advance the Christian faith in the public domain, through Festivals and conferences on Theology, Regional Intercessory Prayer meetings, and acting as a charitable vehicle for releasing social enterprise and voluntary sector initiatives for community cohesion through the regional expressions of local Church across the Eastleigh Borough. 3 of the most developed of these initiatives are Street Pastors, Eastleigh Basics (Food) Bank and ARK (Acts of Random Kindness).

Following professional involvement at Moggerhanger Park during 2004-2007 Danny became Chair of Harvest Vision, the overarching charity responsible for Moggerhanger Park in Sandy, Bedfordshire in 2009. Please refer to
www.moggerhangerpark.co.uk Following purchase of the property for £1 in 1994 approximately £8million has been raised to convert the House, Gardens and Farm to its original state in 1816. The Park seeks to operate as a National and Regional catalyst for creative thinking for Christian initiatives, based upon its historic connection to the Thornton family and the Clapham Group. The social transformation experienced from late Georgian to mid-Victorian in Britain is an inspiration to the work of creative cultural change being encouraged at Moggerhanger.
