When Annie Jarman handed the East Anglian Children’s Hospices a cheque for £27,000 she brought the total she has raised for local charities to more than £200,000.

Annie has worked for brewer Greene King for more than 37 years and in that time has supported organisations in Bury St Edmunds, including Riverwalk School for children with severe or complex learning needs, West Suffolk Hospital’s eye clinic and stroke ward and St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Colleagues at Greene King’s Bury offices support Annie’s fundraising with a variety of activities including race nights and Christmas and Easter raffles. They raised the £27,000 in just five years.

Annie, a purchase to pay administrator, said: “It is incredible to think we’ve raised so much money. I couldn’t do it without all of the support from my colleagues.

“It means a lot to be able to support Each and I plan to continue to support our local charities until the day I retire.”

Vicky Matthews, Each Suffolk corporate fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted to have benefited from Greene King’s head office fundraising.”

The money will go to Each’s £10 million Nook Appeal, which aims to transform children’s palliative care, including building a new hospice.
