On Saturday the whole of Ochre House are walking 20 miles in memory of Vicky Mustoe, a hugely popular employee on the Telefónica O2 account, who very sadly died last year of leukaemia.  Walks will be held simultaneously in London, Dubai and Hong Kong.  The London walk (from Hampton Court Palace to Wandsworth Park via the Thames tow path) will include Vicky’s family and they have chosen for us to support a charity with specific relevance to Vicky.
