Lionel Grant, managing director at Bennett Architectural, said: “We’d like to congratulate the team for taking on this challenge and raising a great sum of money for the Donna Louise.

“Bennett Architectural has been raising money for the Donna Louise for a number of years with almost £10,000 raised since 2009. This is a great local charity we are proud to support.”

Katie Tams, regional fundraiser at The Donna Louise, said: “The support of Bennett Architectural really makes a difference to the children, young adults and families, who rely on The Donna Louise, so on their behalf I’d like to say a big heartfelt thank you to their team for supporting our event.

“We have to raise £4.5 million each year to support more than 240 families from Staffordshire and Cheshire, with most of this coming from fundraising and donations.”
