MBi design and marketing employee Paul Greenwood, said: “We raised £200 for Dementia UK. The day was good fun and well received by local businesses and their customers. The day was to raise awareness of dementia - something we work closely with. It was an opportunity for us to also engage with our community.”

Paul, with a team of seven MBi employees, will go on to take part in a Ben Nevis, Scotland, mountain challenge, followed by a 25 mile cycle ride and canoe challenge to raise money for Dementia UK. To donate see justgiving.com/mbibennevischallenge
