A Cambridgeshire construction business unveiled a branded digger in support of a fundraising campaign for children’s hospice charity EACH.
Family-run business Mead Plant & Grab, based in Swaffham Prior, painted the front of the digger purple with a logo of EACH.
It is the second year of the charity partnership and the Mead family is hoping to raise £2,400 to add to the £1,600 raised in 2018.
Alongside the EACH branded Mead digger, EACH volunteers and the Mead family collected donations for the charity on Saturday April 13.
Emily Rose, EACH corporate fundraising assistant, said: “We’d like to thank Mead Plant & Grab for their continued support.
