Maintel, the telecoms and data services company, will be supporting one of its valued customers, Age UK, in the 2012 Virgin London Marathon.
Over the past six years the telecoms and data services giant has worked with Age UK to issue the company with maintenance support, before moving into looking after the charity’s telephone lines and calls.
Maintel Account Manager, Simon Parsons, will be running the 26.2 mile marathon challenge to raise funds for the charity, which takes place on 22ndApril 2012.
Simon Parsons, Maintel Account Manager, says: “I am really looking forward to supporting Age UK in the 2012 Virgin London Marathon. Not only is Age UK a valued customer of Maintel but also a fantastic charity that provides excellent support to the older generation. I am proud to be supporting them.”
Helen Parsons, Challenge and Running Events Fundraiser at Age UK, says: “We are delighted that Simon has chosen to join the Age UK running team. His marathon effort to raise vital funds to help older people make the most of life is truly inspiring, and we can’t wait to cheer him along on the day.”
Simon hopes to raise at least £1700 for the charity.
