The renovation of our listed Georgian building took another step forward recently following completion of works to convert the Coach House at the rear of the property into additional studio space. After just six weeks the coach house was lovingly transformed by Simon Foote Architects and is now happily occupied.

Dawn is running the Virgin London Marathon

Over the past 4 months, you may have seen Katapult MD Dawn Foote hitting the streets of Derby as part of her training for the London Marathon on April 22nd.

Inspired after watching last year, Dawn signed up and was unexpectedly awarded a place in the ballot. Having never ran more than 10k previously, the prospect of running 26.2 miles is a huge challenge – there have been aches and pains aplenty over the last few weeks as her weekly mileage increases with “the long Sunday run” now up to 14 miles.

Dawn is raising money for REACT, a charity close to her heart, having completed a volunteer conservation placement with the organisation in 2009 in Borneo. The endangered animal charity connects volunteers to various conservation projects over the world, informing people of ways they can contribute to vital fundraising or conservation projects to protect and conserve the world’s most endangered animals.

Dawn will be hosting a charity auction after she has completed the Marathon (no pressure!) but in the meantime please support Dawn by visiting  Virgin Money Giving. All donations and support are hugely appreciated.
