STAFF from a housing developer put their best foot forward to raise funds for school projects in Uganda.
The Taylor Wimpey team, who are based in Bury St Edmunds, completed a gruelling 30km trek on Saturday from the St Edmunds Gate site office, off Primack Road, to the Unilever factory site, in Needham Market.
Proceeds from the walk will help construct and equip a nursery school in Kakooko, Uganda and boost the Beans Means Brains project, which provides school dinners for Ugandan pupils.
The team have also decided to gift £1,000 to Abbots Green Primary School, in Bury, for new IT equipment and £1,000 to Needham Market Middle School’s chosen charity, Possibilities, which aims to improve the lives of impoverished Ugandan children.
Susan Stitt, PA to the East Anglia managing director Bryn Maidman, who took part in the walk, said: “It went very well. The weather was beautiful.”
