icomply customer, Mark Babington of Centro, helps to raise over £18,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care in 427 mile bike ride, enough to run his local hospice for 2.5 days. Can we help him nudge that up to 3 days?
Back in February we posted a request, asking you to dig deep and get giving to one of our customer’s charitable endeavours to raise much-needed funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Today, we bring news of his success and a reminder that it is not too late to get giving on Mark’s team’s Just Giving page.
When we last spoke to Mark, Safer Travel Manager for Centro, the organisation responsible for public transport in the West Midlands), he advised that his team’s target was to raise £7,341 – the cost of running their local hospice for a day. Mark had not ridden a bike for 20 years and had trained hard to ride the 427 miles of Irish coastline from Malin to Mizen. Read more >>
Wow, what a year so far! With our growth trajectory steepening we’ve been out recruiting again. Our latest recruit joins us on April 1st, but he’s no fool, especially when it comes to the IT security market. His name is Nick Smith and his position is sales manager.
Joining us from a similar position at Bosch Security Systems, having done previous in both sales and IT support roles at SISYS, Dorset Police and Dorset County Council, we’d have struggled to find a better fit and hope you’ll join us in welcoming Nick to the business.
Enough from us though: we thought we’d throw a Q&A at Nick so he can answer for himself the sort of questions we think you’d be interested in asking yourself. Read more >>
When we heard that icomply customer, Mark Babington (Safer Travel Manager for Centro, the organisation responsible for the delivery of public transport in the West Midlands) planned to cycle, with two friends, from the northern most point (Malin Head) to the southern most point (Mizen Head) of Ireland, our immediate calculations turned to ‘amount of Guinness likely to be consumed.’ Upon learning more though, we decided that Mark’s quest deserved to be shared with our network; along with this call to action:
“PLEASE GET GIVING ….”
Why? Well, because Mark and his team have accepted this challenge, taking 6 days to cycle 427 miles, with some days being as long as 84 miles, in order to raise much needed funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care (although, they admit that it is not out of the question that some Guinness will be consumed along the way, as, apparently, “it’s good for you”).
