Bury St Edmunds-based health and safety experts HS Direct raised almost £1,200 for charity last month by hosting a laser tag tournament.

The event took place at Planet Laser, in Western Way, which provided the venue free of charge, with participants paying £50 each or £100 for a team.

The money raised will go to The Dylan Foundation, a new charity set up by Des Smith, managing director Of Aspall Cyder, with East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and Focus12 among its four chosen beneficiaries.

Barry Dowman, a director of HS Direct and trustee of The Dylan Foundation, said: “We went and done it (laser tag) as a business a while back and just had such great fun we thought ‘actually, this would be a great way of raising money and having some fun in the process’.”

He added that he enjoyed being able to raise awareness for the charity by bringing local businesses together.
