Mark would not be able to do this all himself. He is working with an amazing team of volunteers that are providing their time to make the event a success:
Event Manager : George Isherwood
GWR Support Team : Charlie Bingham
PR : Anna Stevenson (Website)
Social Media : Kirk Miller
Education : Rachael Wood
Voice Coach : Lucinda Worlock (Website)
Nutritional Advisor : Lorna Taylor (Website)
Medical Advisor : Dr Ian Smith, Consultant Physician RSSC
Norwich Science Festival Liaison : Natalie Bailey (Website)
In addition to the team organising the event there is a growing army of volunteers that will make the attempt happen. The Live Event Support Team is composed of three distinct roles from the volunteers which will be on hand to support and the general running of the event to the witnesses who will log the whole event (capturing start/top times, break times etc to support the record submission) to the team of carers who will oversee the whole event and support Mark.
Volunteers – 36
Witnesses – 10
Carers – 7
In addition to the amazing work of the management team there are others who have kindly donated presentations to Mark to save him creating 140hours of content from scratch. Mark would like to personally thank everyone who has helped out with material including; David Balcombe, Prof Brad Gibson, Dr Jenifer Millard, Dani Robertson, Dr Matt Taylor, Dr Stephanie Yardley.
