Hats Off

I think it is only fair that we start up a big Mexican Wave for one of our 7 Days of Action admins, Mark Brown.

Mark started the research for this week’s campaign, immediately last October’s campaign finished. He has worked incredibly hard over the past many months to make this campaign as successful as it has been.

Mark co-wrote the report ‘A Trade in People’ with academics from Lancaster University, a report that has already started to have an impact in the learning disability field.

He also wrote five of the blogs from this week, something which involved a huge amount of additional research not to mention some excellent literary skills (apostrophes notwithstanding!).

And on top of all that, Mark runs the 7 Days website, occasionally moving campaign headquarters to a tent in darkest Dorset as can be seen in the photograph!

Mark is also full time carer for his lovely son.


Mark – we salute you.
