CEO Gavin Darby conquers Barcelona Marathon for charity!

Congratulations to our CEO Gavin Darby who completed the Barcelona Marathon this weekend to raise a stunning £7,000+ to be split between Premier Foods’ corporate charity partner, Cancer Research UK, and industry charity, Grocery Aid.

A mere 17 years on from his first marathon, Gavin decided to take on the 26 mile challenge for a second time after reaching a milestone birthday last year. The race saw him pass by some of Barcelona’s most famous landmarks including Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, Las Ramblas and the 1992 Olympic Park.

You were incredibly generous and your endorsement really helped me get round. So thank you so, so much!"
