“Our staff and customers were delighted with the results – so much so that our musical group, Papillion, sang a song of thanks at the end of the day,” the publication quoted him as saying.
executive Faye Hewitt said the insurance firm had initially supported Papworth Trust through fundraising events.
She said they were thrilled to learn that they had the “opportunity to offer some practical help too.”
“Our volunteers found it especially rewarding as they were able to work alongside people who regularly use the centre and see first-hand the different that their support will make.”
