Eighteen months worth of fund-raising has seen two vital charities benefit to the sum of more than £13,000.

Mike Blowers, factory manager at British Sugar, and colleagues presented cheques to the Bury St Edmunds branch of Guide Dogs for the Blind and the Stowmarket-based brain injury rehabilitation charity Livability Icanho on Tuesday.

The money - £10,076 and £4,360 respectively - was raised by staff at British Sugar, in Hollow Road, Bury, through fund-raisers which included Christmas draws and a family fun day.

Candy, the guide dog who will be trained using the donation, also attended for the cheque presentation.
