Staff at Fox Narrowboats in March are celebrating as they handover a cheque for £2157.64 to the British Heart Foundation.

The company chose the organisation as their charity of the year for 2014 and raised the money from a variety of events including narrowboat trips at the St George’s Fayre in March, a tool sale, book stall, and a sponsored cycle ride around Rutland Water.

They finished the year with a Christmas tombola.

Tracey Baxter, finance director at Fox Narrowboats, said: “We are delighted with the amount raised for British Heart Foundation this year and would like to thank our customers and staff for their support.

“Next year we will be supporting the East Anglian Children’s Hospice and our first event of the year will be Boat Trips at the March St George’s Fayre on April 26.”
