Flack thought every day at Disney was a chance to slip on the black circles, but this time they’ve got a proper excuse, helping raise £10 million for Great Ormond Street Hospital. The comms team, aka the Disney Dashers, broke out of the gate early by running a half marathon on Sunday.

Beware tech world, Nokia digital marketing manager Selena Harrington and her team have plenty more where that came from.
