A £10,000 charity target has been set by the buildings and pig equipment company, Quality Equipment, to mark its 50th anniversary year, with all funds going to East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).
The company’s choice of EAAA is partly due to it being a local charity for the Suffolk firm. It was also the air ambulance service that saved the company’s founder, Glyn Baker, from a life-threatening situation when he had a farm accident some years ago.
Latest contributors to the charity target are Henry Stark (24) from QE’s marketing department and Frank Barrett (43), manufacturing supervisor, who recently took part in the Lee Valley 10-mile event within the Olympic Park, London.
Henry and Frank were within seconds of their target times, completing their circuits in 1 hour 15 minutes 56 seconds and 1 hour 28 minutes 25 seconds respectively. Their joint effort raised over £650 for the EAAA cause.
