Charitable Children's Book Publisher Igloo Books to Run an Astonishing 7 Marathons in 7 Days

EDINBURGH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 1, 2011) - When leading independent publisher Igloo Books take a moment out from being one of the fastest growing private companies in the UK, they don't just sit back and take a well-earned rest. Oh no, when they aren't producing exceptional adult and childrens books that are sold in more than 25 countries worldwide and in more than 25 languages, they find the time to train to run an incredible 7 marathons in 7 days to raise money for 'The Princes Trust'.

This year along with a number of other charitable events they will be taking part in to raise money for this worthy cause, 4 of Igloo Books sales team will run the Paris Marathon in the 10th April; this being just a part of their training for the massive challenge of running 7 marathons in 7 days in Europe next April.

For those who already know the rapidly expanding team at Igloo Books, this sort of grit and determination is indeed quite fitting given the amount of hard work that has gone into everything this independent publisher has achieved in a short space of time. Since being established in 2003 they have grown steadily, building not only their strong creative publishing team but by expanding successfully into the export market too as well as their unique range of licenced characters such as the exquisite Humphreys corner books. Their reach is now as long as their legs and does not look like slowing down any time soon with 32 new employees added in just the last 18 months. And why would they when they have a powerful figurehead in the shape of managing director John Styring and gorgeous purpose built offices in the delightful surroundings of Cottage Farm in Sywell, Northamptonshire.

Whether you are looking for a publisher to distribute your work or if you are looking for a job (yes they're hiring) at a company with a truly remarkable story and a team of highly motivated individuals, Igloo Books is by far the best place to turn. With a strong charitable streak to complement their keen business acumen they have all the credentials of a world beating company, with a wave of excitement and success that you can't help but long to be a part of.
