STAEDTLER's marketing manager to run marathon in memory of Duncan Savage

In April last year, STAEDTLER suffered the sudden loss of its MD, Duncan Savage. He died on the day of the London Marathon which has inspired Rachel Woolley, STAEDTLER's Marketing Manager to run in this year's event in his memory and also to fund-raise for the British Heart Foundation.

Rachel said, “I’m running the London Marathon in 2017 to raise money for the British Heart Foundation in memory of Duncan Savage. Duncan Savage was the MD of STAEDTLER (UK) Ltd who tragically passed away after suffering a heart attack at the age of 58 on 24th April 2016. This was also the date of the London Marathon and I was in London supporting a friend who was running in the marathon when I received the sad news. It seems a fitting tribute to Duncan that, a year later, I should run the London Marathon in his memory to raise vital funds for the research and great work of the British Heart Foundation.

“For all of us at STAEDTLER Duncan was an inspirational boss but, more than that, he was a kind and caring friend as well. By donating through Virgin Money Giving, your donation will be quickly processed and passed to the British Heart Foundation. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible.

“Your donation to my page will be greatly appreciated by both myself and the British Heart Foundation.”
