A generous building firm that has raised thousands for a charity that supports people with life-limiting illness, added to the phenomenal amount raised over the years last week.

At the Aston Group, Moss Lane, Romford, offices staff donated a cheque worth £1,000 to representatives of Saint Francis Hospice, Broxhill Road, Havering-atte-Bower.

Romford MP Andrew Rosindell also attended the event along with the charity’s fundraising manager Anne Brown, and corporate partnerships manager, Mike Allen.

A spokeswoman for the charity said: “The team at Aston Group have raised over £15,000 for Saint Francis Hospice since they started fundraising.

“This time one of the Romford based team, Ian Cassidy ran the Brentwood Half Marathon.”

Ms Brown, added: “We are so proud of this partnership.”

In September, Ian will attempt to raise even more cash by completing the Three Peaks challenge, which involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland often within 24 hours.
