Over the last 6 months, The Distance have seen a wealth of recognition from both our customers and the wider services industry.

The Encephalitis Society, Charity Times Awards

Over the last two years, we’ve worked very closely with the Encephalitis Society to deliver Brainwalk, a global walking challenge app. The app was released in alignment with the annual World Encephalitis Day (WED). Brainwalk allows users to collectively walk around the world by synchronising their steps recorded on their devices or fitness trackers, or by playing games.

At the end of 2018, the app was double award winning. The first accolade acquired was Best Fundraising Technology at Charity Times Awards 2018. Brainwalk was also awarded the Gold Award in the Best Use of Digital by a Charity at the 2018 Digital Impact Awards. We are honoured to have helped deliver this app to help raise awareness for such an important cause.

Clutch has helped our business tremendously by informing potential clients about what we do. Our Managing Director, Anthony Main, said:

“Clutch has been an important marketing channel for us for many years now, the service it delivers through its algorithm and ranking is market leading. Even if a new business opportunity has not to come to us directly through Clutch, nine times out of ten the client has seen our profile. Reading our reviews has become all the necessary due diligence a client requires, and we welcome the transparency it affords.”

We are thankful for everyone that has helped us get to where we are today, and we are grateful that our efforts have always been recognised on Clutch. If you’d like to work with us, you can get in touch by firing an email to
