The team at Fluid Branding have been very busy recently with various charity endeavours. First came a challenge to mimic the incredible journey taken by Wildebeest from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara every year. The 24-hour challenge was to cover 1800 miles from 22nd – 23rd March 2018 from 12pm – 12am. Raising money for The Vanessa Grant Trust, the trust is involved in various projects in Kenya including building and maintaining schools and nurseries as well as vital vocational training programmes.
The event was hosted at Evolve Sport & Fitness, St Austell, Cornwall in association with Cornwall College, participants could run, jog, cycle or row their distance. The team smashed it with various Fluid team members popping in and racking up the distance during the 24-hour period.
Fluid Branding’s CEO Matt Franks travelled to Rongai, Kenya last year to help with the ongoing development of existing projects as part of a volunteer group, delivering business leadership workshops and helping set up essential IT infrastructure for the schools in the community. Fluid’s Managing Director, Miles Lovegrove is planning his volunteering visit to Rongai this summer to continue this vital work. Fluid Branding have supported The Vanessa Grant Trust since 2010 and during that time they have raised over £10,000 which has helped the charity give vital aid and support to the community of Rongai.
Sunday 25th March saw the first ever London Landmarks Half Marathon, through Westminster and the City with over 10,000 runners taking part, amongst them was Fluid’s very own CEO Matt Franks!
The event took runners on a route taking in famous landmarks such as The Bank of England, the Tower of London, Big Ben, the Royal Courts of Justice and Nelson’s Column.
Matt raised funds for Pancreatic Cancer UK, a cause very close to his heart and achieved a very impressive time of 1 hour and 38 minutes.
Matt comments “It was a fantastic event, running around the closed streets of London was an experience I won’t forget, the crowds were amazing and really helped spur me on when I needed that extra boost! I’m delighted to be able to help raise money for Pancreatic Cancer UK”.
