Staff from a Yatton business have raised thousands of pounds for a children’s hospice – helping to pay for 24-hour doctor cover at the charity.
Over the past two years, colleagues from the Costain office in Yatton have been supporting Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
Members of the team took on the Three Peaks Challenge in South Wales, a 5km bubble run and run office tuck shops and raffles.
Staff have also given up their time to volunteer at the charity’s shops in Bristol and Glastonbury.
Their efforts have raised more than £7,400 to help children with life-limiting conditions.
