An audio and visual equipment distributor will support a children's bereavement charity for the next two years.

Midwich, based in Diss, launched its partnership with Nelson's Journey by raising £500 for the organisation after staff cycled 300 miles on exercise bikes in a day.

Simon Wright, chief executive of Nelson's Journey, said: 'With their brilliant effort on the exercise bikes, staff at Midwich have been wheelie quick to get into action for Norfolk's bereaved children. Nelson's Journey is delighted that Midwich has chosen to support us for the next two years. Their enthusiastic team have a great track record in helping local causes. We've seen growing demand for our services across the county, including south Norfolk, and Midwich will play an important part in helping us to respond to the growing needs of the community.'

Midwich raised more than £27,000 for The Big C in 2015-16.
