* This week’s good cause is Haroon Malik (the marketing manager at Workshare, London) who is running a half-marathon later this month ro raise money for a clean water charity project in Uganda. He’s also studying for an MBA but we won’t hold that against him! Full details here http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=harriokie

* And this week’s picture story features Edinburgh based HotDocs, which recently won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade. The entire HotDocs UK team attended a reception at the City Chambers on Tuesday 30th July 2013, hosted by the Right Honourable Donald Wilson, Lord Provost and Lord Lieutenant of the City of Edinburgh, who presented HotDocs Managing Director, Russell Shepherd, with a certificate and commemorative crystal bowl on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen and in recognition of the company’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2013. (We know, the company triumphs in international trade and all they get is a glass fruit bowl!)
