Alumnus to run New York marathon for charity
Oliver Jeffcott will be running the New York marathon in November for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT) following his work in building a B-Corporation registered company.
MWCT aims to protect the legendary ecosystems and great biodiversity of East Africa through conservation that directly benefits local Maasai communities. Oliver will be raising funds more specifically for the charity’s work in conservation, healthcare and education in East Africa.
B-Corporation companies are a fast-growing movement, revolving around the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. They aim to create sustainable value through a people and planet over profit philosophy.
Oliver graduated with first class degree in BA Industrial Design and Technology in 2018.
