L-R David Inkster, Dave Heeley & Joy Inkster outside Master Key Systems
"Blind Dave” Heeley first contacted Master Key Systems MKS Ltd back in December 2016, regarding an order of new locks for his upcoming house move.
The Black Country athlete has run the equivalent of over two laps of the planet in his dedication to extraordinary fundraising feats for charities such as Macmillan, Help Harry Help Others and Guide Dogs for the Blind.
In 2008, Blind Dave became the first and only blind person to complete the 777 challenge, 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents. In 2011, he ran 10 marathons in 10 days, making his way from John O’Groats to Land’s End.
Earlier this year, he started the first of 25 gruelling challenges, which started with the Great Edinburgh Winter Run 5K back in January before completing the Great Ethiopian Run in November where Dave will celebrate his 60th birthday.
After many email conversations with Dave, we decided to gift the locks as a thank you for his tireless charity work. Dave came to visit us (with his bike!) back in March to meet everyone on site and to collect his order.
May we take this opportunity to say that all at MKS are proud to support Dave in his charity work and we wish him all the best in his future challenges.
