Workers raise more than £100,000 for trust
A charitable partnership between Lafarge Aggregates & Concrete UK and The Prince's Trust has now raised more than £100,000 to support disadvantaged young people.
Lafarge employees have taken part in activities including trek challenges, car washes, cake sales, bag packing, race nights, and dress-down days to raise the cash.
The fund-raising received another boost recently following a flurry of endeavours inspired by the Olympic Games.
A fourth annual Lafarge Golf Day at Tydd St Giles Golf and Leisure Club, near Wisbech, saw staff and customers compete in a charity golf challenge. while supervisor Graham Keast used his wife's birthday gift of a free skydiving session to drum up £560.
