All the money raised has been donated to Kidney Research UK, a charity which sits close to Eric Wright Facilities Management after one of its site supervisors Gary Boast underwent a kidney transplant operation in 2016 for his dad.

Donor Gary Boast, said: “Without the kidney transplant my dad wouldn’t be here today and it’s great for the company to help raise money for Kidney Research UK and organise the charity event.”

Connal O’Brien, managing director from Eric Wright Facilities Management, added: “This was all for a great cause and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part and contributed donations and their time.

“The money raised along with that from our recent charity golf day supporting Derian House, totals more than £9,000, showing our commitment to support the communities and causes that sit closely to our staff and projects.”
