A family construction business is encouraging people to name a digger to raise money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
Mead Plant & Grab, who have already raised £1800 for the charity, is looking to double this amount as part of their charity partnership
For just £20 you can name one of their diggers and then come and have your photo taken with it.
All of the money raised will go to EACH.
Ian Boreham, from I&S Groundworks, in Kennett, and his wife Sara have kicked off the scheme, naming a digger after their daughter Chelsey.
