08/02/2010

Darren Cantell, the designer who†created our new website and marketing materials is running in the 2010 London Marathon to raise money for Cambridgeshire Mencap.

Darren CantellIn preparation for the marathon†Darren has been training an incredible 8 times a week and by the time the race day dawns, he will have spent a staggering 21 hours rowing or cycling, 58 hours running and 21 hours swimming!

"Last year we won the pitch to design a new website and literature for Cambridgeshire Mencap. Up until then I wasn't really aware of the great work they do as a charity. However, since working with them I've met some of the people they help on a daily basis and I'm really impressed with the great work they do for local people. Because I'm proud of my association with Cambridgeshire Mencap I decided to run the London Marathon on their behalf this year".†
