Newmarket based Hastings Direct staff raised £472 for its new charity partner Little Buds. The monies were donated from the staff participating in the company's annual staff survey.
Little Buds based at Studlands Park is a local nursery offering a happy, stimulating and safe environment for young children.
Aza Row, chair, Hastings Direct charity committee: "This is the first of many donations for Little Buds this year as our staff is committed to supporting them."
Little Buds is using the funding towards the costs of building an extension for its community centre - so far £6,000 has been raised but there is still a long way to go. The cheque was presented by Aza Row and Sarah Norton-Parr and was received by Bill George, Tanya Seizer and Antoinette Still.
