Paul McMillan, former editor of Money Marketing, had one wish upon his departure – that his beloved Wells Street Journal would not become a home for dull PRs and corporate charity pleas.
With this in mind, we promise this will be the last fundraising story for at least a week.
MM head of news Tom Selby, who only last week returned from three-days of wodka swilling at a Polish wedding, is set to take on an epic charity challenge. Alongside AJ Bell marketing director Billy Mackay and eight other hardy souls/idiots, Selby will hike up and down Ben Nevis (pictured) twice in one day (21 miles in total).
He will then get a good night’s sleep (and definitely not go down the pub for a lock-in) before setting off on a 36-mile bike ride from Ullapool to Bonar Bridge in Scotland.
The event is to raise money for Finding Your Feet, a charity set up by friends of Corinne Hutton, a childhood friend of Mackay’s, who had a quadruple amputation as a result of septicaemia.
In addition to raising funds for bionic prosthetic limbs for Corinne, the purpose of the charity is to support people in a similar position who do not have the support network she has benefited from.
