A Fenland youth group and a junior football team have become the latest recipients to benefit from Metalcraft’s Community Fund.
The firm donated £360 to the Chatteris Town Girls team to help fund a new training kit, and £400 to the Doddington & Villages Under 5s group to go towards more toys for their play area.
Over £8,600 has been pledged by Metalcraft from Chatteris since launching the fund in 2017, with 52 Fenland organisations already benefitting from the scheme.
A Metalcraft spokeswoman said: "The aim of the community fund is to ensure there are a diverse range of successful organisations locally, enhancing the area and the work-life balance of local inhabitants and our employees.
"This in turn will hopefully attract people to the area, therefore securing employees, in particular apprentices, for Metalcraft's future.
