Island Businesses Join the Mince Pie Marathon

· 2 minute read

We have just launched a charity initiative in aid of our charity of the year, The Wight Brainy Bunch. The Mince Pie Marathon is the brain child of Matt Jeffery, CEO of Brightbulb who wants businesses across the Isle of Wight to order 10’s or 100’s or 1000’s of mince pies all of which will be delivered by his Brightbulb team in a single day to all locations across the Island.

Matt says,
“We want as many stops as we can to be marked out on our marathon map, as many mince pies ordered from businesses all over the Island and as much money raised as possible for this fantastic charity. Come on everyone, let’s see how hard you can make this for us. Who will take the top spot on the Mince Pie Marathon leaderboard.”

The Wight Brainy Bunch was set up by Mark Grimes and his wife Kathryn, from the Isle of Wight, following Marks diagnosis of a brain tumour in February 2015. Realising that very little funding is received for research into brain tumours; following Marks surgery in April 2015, they embarked on a series of fund-raising events to benefit the Brain Tumour Charity.
