anna.aero’s Virgin London Marathon: Boston remembered – easyJet, London Gatwick, TFWA thanked
Worry not. This is not a long, self-indulgent report on anna.aero’s Virgin London Marathon team, but it is an acknowledgement of the great sportsperson-ship shown by easyJet and London Gatwick Airport, whose central corporate backing helped anna.aero raise almost $40,000 for Anthony Nolan, the bone marrow transplant charity, during this year’s run.
Anthony Nolan is supported by anna.aero because it arranged two bone marrow transplants for Brontë, the daughter of anna.aero’s publisher, who tragically passed away after a five-year battle with leukaemia exactly two years ago. Well over $150,000 has been raised through the seven London Marathons since “TeamBron” hit the streets in 2007.
“Our airport backers generally buy significant sports-style marketing packages from anna.aero, including advertising and Route Shop entries, while for others, like easyJet, it’s a straight case of very generous corporate giving” explained anna.aero publisher, Paul Hogan.
“The Tax Free World Association – which represents the world’s airport duty free stores and the fantastic value, world-leading branded goods and gifts that we all love to buy from them – also continued its marvellous “TeamBron” sponsorship, meaning it has given well over €20,000 to our cause,” acknowledged a grateful Hogan.
