Local charities have benefited from two days of volunteering activities by staff at Nielsen Brandbank in Norwich.

More than 100 employees from the Bowthorpe office took part in international group Nielsen's seventh Global Impact Day.

This year Nielsen Brandbank chose eight charities to support, including PACT animal sanctuary, East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH), Redwings horse sanctuary, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Break, where 20 volunteers helped with preparation for the GoGoHares trail. Staff also headed to Sea Palling to take part in a beach clean.

The company also raised £8,000 in advance of Global Impact Day, which was distributed among the charities.

Mike Nickituk, managing director at Nielsen Brandbank, said: 'This year marks another successful Global Impact Day for Nielsen and Nielsen Brandbank.'
