Managing Director, Tessa Ogle says: “I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in the Virgin Money London Marathon on behalf of the Electrical Industries Charity. Their efforts have inspired so many people in our industry to take part in next years The Virgin Money London Marathon as well as raising such a great amount which will help us to continue to provide support to people in our industry who need help the most.”

“We have already had enquiries about places for the 2017 event and I can confirm that we will once again be offering Gold Bond places to those who would like to take part and raise funds for the Electrical Industries Charity. But it is worth remembering that if you do get a ballot place for 2017 you can still raise funds for the charity and help us to support those in our industry when they need it most.”
