Employees at an Orpington firm have raised more than £3,000 for charity through a range of fundraising initiatives.

A team from the Crofton Road branch of investment management firm Redmayne-Bentley held sweepstakes, dress-down days and other events in aid of children’s hospice charity Demelza.

In September, they took part in a Thames Bridges Trek, crossing 16 bridges over the River Thames in a 25km hike from Fulham to Southwark.

The total raised in their year of challenges came to £3,610.

Investment support executive Anita Evans said: “We initially had a £500 target at the back of our minds, so to raise over £3,600 is amazing. We’re all really proud of what we have achieved.”

Tamsyn Clark, director of fundraising at Demelza, said: “We are very grateful to all the staff at Redmayne-Bentley who really did put their best feet forward for us!”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
