The team at ABP's Port of Lowestoft has donated their winnings from a corporate awards evening to two local charities.
After winning the ABP Chairman's Award for Engineering at a special ceremony in October last year, as part of their prize the team were given £1,000 to donate to the charity of their choice.
A team vote subsequently led to two charities being picked – Beat and The Fishermen's Mission – with both charities receiving £500.
Beat is the UK's leading charity on eating disorders while The Fishermen's Mission reaches out to both active and retired fishermen.
ABP Lowestoft port manager, Paul Brooks, said: 'I am very proud that the Lowestoft team won this award for their work replacing the Hydraulic Drive Unit of the Bascule Bridge at the port, and that they were able to select these two important local charities that are close to their hearts to receive this donation.'
