Diss staff at Midwich scale new heights for cancer charities

A team of 11 staff from Diss-based technology company Midwich have raised more than £7,400 for Cancer Research UK and the Big C by tackling the Three Peaks Challenge.
They climbed Ben Nevis, in Scotland, Scafell Pike, in England and Snowdon, in Wales, in 25 hours and 10 minutes.
They were approached with the offer to take part in a charity fundraiser by printer manufacture Brother UK - which Midwich represents and which supported the challenge.
Team member Harriet Robbins said: 'Having raised so much money for two very important charities we feel so humbled with the generosity of our families, friends, colleagues and even strangers.
'The challenge itself was brutal, we were not half as prepared as we needed to be but that didn't stop us – we climbed mountain, after mountain, after mountain with mostly smiles across our faces.'
