Stuart Biggerstaff, a sales manager for serviced office company Avanta, is running the Flora London Marathon is aiming to raise over £5,000 in sponsorship for the charity Macmillan Cancer Support.

The 32 year old from Leighton Buzzard is taking part in the London Marathon for the first time, and hopes to complete the 26.2 mile course in an impressive three and a half hours. His fund raising efforts got off to a flying start with a donation from Avanta of £2,000.

Stuart said: "My training has gone well and I am now looking forward to the big day. I am very grateful for the generous donation from Avanta, which has been a huge boost to my fund raising efforts."

Avanta itself has recently been in training, preparing for the launch of a new virtual office service – Avanta Virtual PA. Designed to offer businesses a complete package of office support but without the actual office space, Virtual PA can deliver a full range of business centre facilities to home workers, business start-ups, professionals on the move, or larger organisations seeking a market presence in London.

The Avanta virtual office community has been designed to help businesses benefit from having a prestigious London address at one of Avanta’s premier London business centres, including the Media Village, without paying the required rent to physically occupy the building. Mail is handled by Avanta staff and is forwarded on the same day as delivery. Clients can even enjoy their own London telephone number and call management service, and have access to Avanta’s experienced office back-up support team.

Aligned to the launch of the Virtual PA, is Avanta’s meeting and training room service (MTR). For companies who wish to hire space for a board away day or brainstorm session, a day’s interviewing or seminar and training, Avanta can offer meeting rooms complete with audio and video conferencing. Also part of the Media Village Meeting and Training Room package is catering and secretarial services, while specialist meeting coordinators are available to take care of the smallest detail.
