Swindon digital marketing expert launches fundraising initiative for Best Mates charity

By Nick Batten on 21 April, 2024

Digital marketing specialist Rob Curtis, is lacing up his running shoes to support Swindon-based charity Best Mates. 

Rob founded The Pursuit Agency nearly two years ago, a digital marketing agency aimed at enhancing businesses’ online presence and promoting growth. Yet many people who know Rob know that he loves his sport including football and running. 

With this in mind, he was clear that The Pursuit Agency’s mission is not only to assist businesses in developing their digital identity but also to give back to the community through charitable giving. As part of this pledge, Rob has signed up to run the Bournemouth Half Marathon in October to raise funds for Best Mates.

Rob said, “I have been on a journey, from being a young dad to starting my business. My wife, family, and friends have always supported me through the highs and lows and there have been some lows. 

“Best Mates and its work resonates deeply with me, and I am honoured to contribute to such a worthy cause. With the support of partners, clients, and friends, my team and I aim to raise £3,000 for Best Mates by the end of the year.”

Best Mates is dedicated to providing support to individuals facing challenging circumstances by connecting them with empathetic peers who have undergone similar experiences. 

Through its matching process, the organisation ensures individuals receive compassionate support from someone who understands their situation first-hand – a ‘Best Mate’.

Additionally, Best Mates offer practical assistance and access to essential services, such as counselling and financial support, to alleviate the burdens faced by those in distress.

Jeff Tucker, Co-founder of Best Mates, said, “Massive applause to Rob from everyone at our charity Best Mates. His dedication in support of our cause is truly appreciated. We extend our heartfelt thanks for being an outstanding advocate and positively impacting the lives of others. We’re rooting for him every step of the journey.”
