John’s marathon effort for We Love Lichfield Fund

The MD of Lichfield marketing agency John Heeler is running the 2015 London Marathon is aid of We Love Lichfeld.

John said: “I was invited by charity patron Simon Price to run for this cause and felt that, having lived in the district all my life and run a creative marketing agency here for 14 years, it was time to give something back to the community. Anything I raise helps to support grants to local community groups and associations and any donation is greatly appreciated.”

The 45 year-old continued: “I genuinely love the area we live in and thought it was right to run around London for local causes rather than a ‘corporate’ charity. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.”

John, who has lived in Whittington for most of his life, owns a local business Straightforward Solutions which delivers creative design and marketing solutions (www.straightforward
