Larkfleet Group raises �8,500 for The Willow Foundation
GENEROUS staff of the Larkfleet Group donated more than �8,500 to a charity after a fundraising campaign.
Fenland Enterprise Business Awards sponsor Larkfleet gave the cash to The Willow Foundation to give seriously ill 16-40-year-olds the perfect day out.
Workers pushed themselves hard to reach the total, cycling 1,016 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats in just 10 days to raise awareness of young adults fighting life threatening diseases.
The group, which is encouraging neighbouring companies to put themselves forward for this year’s business awards after sponsoring a category, also held dinners for the national foundation.
It was particularly close to the heart of Larkfleet managing director Karl Hick after his sister-in-law died from cancer at the age of 24.
