As a result, director of the firm, Dominic Shaw presented Dr Chris Bushby, chief executive of Big C with a cheque for £5,796.

Mr Shaw said: “It’s a real pleasure to be able to donate such a sizeable sum of money to Big C, we’ve had a lot of fun raising it and we know that it’s going to a very worthwhile cause.”

Dr Chris Bushby said: “We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income, so support from local businesses is really important. We’d like to say a massive thank you to Aston Shaw for choosing us as their charity for the last year. It’s been a brilliant year working with the whole of the Aston Shaw team.”

Aston Shaw’s new charity of the year is East Anglian Air Ambulance and it says it wants to beat last year’s total and hopes to raise £7,000.
