A year-long fund raising appeal which saw staff at a Bury St Edmunds company cycle 290 miles and climb Snowdon has seen more than £13,000 go to West Suffolk Hospital’s Rainbow Ward.
The cash raised by Frames Conservatories Direct allowed the hospital to buy a portable cardiac monitor and eight bedside monitors to use for its youngest patients.
Adrian Lewis, Frames’ managing director, said: “We wanted it to be a local cause and we were delighted to fund raise for the Rainbow Ward and especially for these vital pieces of equipment. We would like to thank everyone who supported our fund raising. That includes our staff, business colleagues and friends and also the town’s rugby club, football club and golf club.”
Over the year, the company organised quiz nights, a race night, golf days and a darts night. Staff also organised charity walks, climbed Snowdon and did a 290-mile cycle ride around Suffolk and Norfolk over three days.
