Icom UK’s Marketing Manager, Ian Lockyer is undertaking 3 gruelling athletic challenges in aid of 3 charities this year. Ian will be attempting to complete the London Marathon (22/04/12), 24 Hour Challenge (19/05/12-20/05/12) and the London Triathlon (22/09/12) in aid of ‘Children with Cancer’, ‘RNLI’ and the Kent Association for the Blind.
