NEARLY £2,750 was presented to Sue Ryder Care by Fenmarc Produce, to mark the end of a two-month fundraising campaign.
Staff at the March-based factory stepped up to the charity's Big Wigs Challenge by holding various events - including a charity football tournament - and by taking part in a 10km midnight walk.
In total, £2,742.12 was raised for the charity's Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough.
Emma Long, Sue Ryder Care fundraiser from Thorpe Hall, visited Fenmarc last Thursday to accept the cheque.
Kristi Glowacki, Fenmarc's training administrator who organised the campaign and presented the cheque, said: "The Sue Ryder Big Wigs challenge has truly been a challenge especially in the current economic climate.
"But, with the support and enthusiasm from the Fenmarc front office team and generous suppliers in the area, we have made a fantastic amount of money for this fantastic local charity which could affect any one of us and had some fun at the same time.
"We are really pleased to have helped Thorpe Hall Hospice. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for their help and support."
Emma said: “This is a fantastic amount of money to be raised through Big Wigs and will really help us here at the hospice.
“This is a great example of how a local business can support us, and we hope more will take up fundraising activities.”
