JDR Cables, on Wisbech Road, invited its staff to choose a charity which they’d like to support over a 12-month period, and EACH came out on top.

After a year of fund raising, £3,521 was handed over to representatives from EACH last Thursday, and project document controller, Collette Grantham, was delighted with the company’s total.

She said: “Last year, employees chose East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) as their official charity. A variety of events, initiatives and donations included a family day, bake-offs, quizzes and ‘dress down Fridays, and these gave JDR the privilege of raising the fantastic amount of £3,521.”
