King’s Lynn company Bespak donates �10k to British Lung Foundation

Norfolk company supports national charity for people affected by lung disease.

Members of staff from Bespak in King's Lynn are donning their fundraising caps to raise money for the British Lung Foundation (BLF), a charity working for everyone affected by lung disease across the UK.

Bespak has chosen to show support by donating �10,000 towards the BLF's campaigning, awareness-raising and research work, as well as helping set up a Lynn branch of the BLF's Breathe Easy support network for people affected by lung disease.

Joe Barry, managing director of Bespak, said: 'We decided to support the British Lung Foundation because every second of every day 1,000 people worldwide use a Bespak device to help them breathe and therefore both the BLF and ourselves share a common goal.

'We hope that this contribution will be a positive step towards raising awareness and improving the lives of those affected by lung disease.'
