Staff at a housing association have raised almost £1,800 for three good causes.
Workers at Freebridge Community Housing organised events and activities throughout 2013 to support the East Anglian Air Ambulance, West Norfolk Mind and The Alzheimer’s Society.
The Freebridge Employee panel raised money by putting on raffles, cake sales and a “dress up or dress down” day.
Charity representatives were invited to a special lunch where they were presented with a cheque for nearly £600 each.
Tony Hall, chief executive of Freebridge said: “Every year when we choose our charities, I am extremely proud to see how hard the team at Freebridge work to plan events and how generous they are with the money they give. Our Employee Panel show a huge amount of commitment to organising and promoting the activities. Their enthusiasm makes sure that everyone feels inspired to join in, having fun and raising money for our fantastic causes at the same time.”
The air ambulance’s area fundraising manager Chris Donaldson has thanked the association for the donation.
He said: “This money will help to keep our service using dedicated highly skilled medical crews operating 365 days-a-year in our area and we thank Freebridge for their continued support.”
Freebridge employees have chosen to support East Anglian Air Ambulance, King’s Lynn Foodbank and Macmillan Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital during 2014.
