An Ely travel agency is appealing for people to nominate worthwhile causes after staff offered to donate 80 hours of their time.

Premier Travel is giving back to the community by volunteering its help for special charitable projects.

Ely residents who know a charity in need of volunteers for a particular initiative or an extra pairs of hands for its day-to-day activities, are being encouraged to put forward the organisation for Premier Travel’s community project.

Sue Steel, manager of Premier Travel’s Ely branch, said: “We’re really excited to lend our assistance to local charities. Premier is willing to volunteer for anything that needs doing, from helping to plant a sensory garden to supporting elderly people.

“The company has raised money for some fantastic causes including holding coffee mornings in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and doing car washes and even a tandem sky dive for the Arthur Rank Hospice in Cambridge.

“If you know a local charity in need of support, please nominate them for our community project and we’ll do our best to help.”

This latest campaign follows on the heels of Premier’s 80 prizes in 80 days giveaway, and celebrates the company’s 80th anniversary this year.
