Please accept our apologies for any quality issues in this video clip. Filming was done under heavy rain and winds. It rained heavy all day. But that’s typical British weather; it did not stop us having a great time!

James B Wong – Chairman of the

#wmcreative30 30x10K for Sightsavers Complete

The last 10km in WM Creative’s epic 300km charity appeal was run last night at Sandwell Valley. To celebrate 30 years of creativity WM Creative have pledged to save the sight of 30 children by raising £3,000 for the charity Sightsavers.

The last of 30 10km runs had added significance when Blind Dave, the nation’s favourite blind endurance athlete, once again pulled on his running shoes to join WM Creative MD, Paul Whitehouse, friends and supporters on the last 10km around Sandwell Valley Country Park in a fitting climax to our appeal.
