Hundreds of pounds raised through business challenges and free family events has been donated to two West Norfolk charities.

The Vancouver Quarter business challenges and bauble trail raised £150 for mental health charity West Norfolk Mind and £100 to disability charity West Norfolk Mencap.

Staff at Studio20a won last year’s business challenge after accumulating the most points in a variety of challenges, which ranged from pancake races to a giant buzz wire contest.

The company, which has a Tuesday Market Place base, specialises in design, photography and film and beat a team from Ward Gethin Archer into second place.

Teams from Boots and Wilko finished in joint third place.

“The challenges were a great opportunity to have a laugh and spend some time together outside of work. We had fun and the events were run excellently,” said Gavin Caney of Studio20a.
