A family construction business handed over a cheque for more than £2,000 after a two-year charity partnership with East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Mead Plant & Grab, based in Swaffham Prior, raised the money through staff fundraising activities and the public paying to name their diggers.

Collections also took place at sponsors Cambridge United FC.

Phil Mead, plant hire manager, said: "As a local family business it's incredibly important for us to support local charities and EACH is extremely deserving.
