His day job sees him running Hungry Communications – a food and drink specialist marketing agency but Sam Houston is a superhero in his spare time!
Sam ran the Frankfurt Marathon in October, on behalf of one of his drinks clients, leading German beer brand Krombacher but his fund raising efforts were all in aid of Pub is The Hub’s Community Services Fund and he has managed to raise over £950 in total.
Sam said: “It was an incredibly tough but fantastic experience so I have to thank Krombacher for the opportunity. It’s obviously disappointing to get whooped by 7 minutes by my little brother Jack but I’m delighted with the time of 4 hours 32 minutes. I know just how important pubs are to communities so it’s brilliant to have raised some much needed funds for a fabulous cause and I’m looking forward to seeing how they will be used.”
John Longden, Chief Executive for Pub is The Hub said: “It’s rare that we have personal donations like this and we have to say that Sam really has gone the extra mile (or should that be 26 miles) for pubs and we congratulate him.”
