This week we were joined on our Instagram takeover by Dave Heeley, AKA Blind Dave; the first blind person to complete the seven Marathon challenge. It was a great evening and we hope you found listening to Dave as inspiring as we did.
Next week will be the last of our Lockdown Instagram takeovers (don’t worry, we’ll be back with some more in the future), and we will be joined by Brigadier Mark Christie and Colonel Stuart Williams.
