The socially-distanced walk, which was organised by employee Darren Yeend, took in sites which played a role during the Second World War.

Having set an initial fundraising target for £1,500, the group surpassed their own expectations and raised more than £3,000 for the charity.

The company was particularly keen to raise money for the Royal British Legion due to the lack of fundraising opportunities this year because of COVID-19.
