Staff from Taylor Made Joinery Interiors in Bildeston donated £9,000 to the British Heart Foundation last week after completing a sponsored 15-mile trek through the Lake District in just 12 hours in September.

A total of 26 people took part in the fundraising effort which is set to become an annual event for the company.

Andy King, project manager, thanked the staff, customers and family members who made donations. “It was very mountainous and there were 3,100 metres of ascents and descents – it was pretty much as rough as it gets,” he said.
