• Nimans makes marathon effort in memory of former chairman

        • Staff from Nimans battled the heat to raise thousands of pounds for Manchester’s Brain And Spinal Injury Centre (BASIC), in a company-wide charity venture inspired by former Chairman Julian Niman.

          Twentymembers of the group’s workforce completed the Manchester half marathon last weekend, with Marketing’s Tom Hague first over the finish line for ‘Team Nimans’ in a time of 1.51hrs.

          The group ran in support of BASIC which provides a wide range of centre-based support, including  virtual reality rehabilitation, for those recovering from brain and spinal injuries, as well as their families. BASIC also supports Epilepsy sufferers, a condition which affected Julian who sadly passed away earlier this year.

          John McKindland, Head of Solutions and one of the runners said, “this was an unprecedented team effort involving work colleagues, the wider company and also suppliers such as Gamma, Polycom, Plantronics and Jabra. I am so proud of everyone. BASIC provides a wealth of vital support and we are all went through the pain barrier to help such a worthy local cause – inspired by support both internally and the wider comms community. The memory of Julian was never far from our thoughts.”
