Staff at a Norfolk property firm have donated a years’ worth of fundraising to a charity which helps older people across the county.

Arnolds Keys – which includes Keys Fine Art Auctioneers and agricultural property specialists Irelands – raised a total of £9393.33 for Age UK Norfolk, their designated charity for 2017.

A skydive, a series of Antiques Roadshow style valuation days across the county, a golf day, a car wash at Keys Aylsham saleground, a murder mystery evening, an inter-office challenge and a Christmas carol concert were among the fundraising initiatives undertaken by staff during the year.

Hilary MacDonald, chief executive of Age UK Norfolk, said: “In the current economic climate, it is a real boost when a company nominates a charity such as ours to be the beneficiary of their fundraising activity. We are hugely grateful for the enthusiasm Arnolds Keys’ staff showed in supporting us – and the magnificent sum of money they have raised.”
