OWB won big at the first even Midland Marketing Awards last week.

The agency won two trophies; the Not-for-Profit Campaign prize for the teams marketing work for Cure Leukaemia that saw the blood cancer charity raise £3million in three years and Andy Wilkinson winning Marketing Leader of the Year.

Andy said: “We are delighted to receive recognition for the positive impact made by our team for Cure Leukaemia, a charity with a fantastic mission and who we have supported over many years to inform and engage more people about their work than ever before. The highlights included our work for Tour 21, the charity’s headline fundraising drive which sees a team of 18 non-professional riders ride 3400km on the full 21 stages of the Tour de France, which has raised £3m over the last three years and will return in 2024.
