A home improvement company has paid for a day of care and support at East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

VPS Evander has been supporting EACH since June 2016.

Staff members have organised a range of fundraising events with one worker, Chloe Foreman, going the extra mile and completing a 162 mile sled-ride across Lapland.

The firm raised £6,119 for EACH beating its target of £5,300 – the costs it takes for the charity to deliver its service in Norfolk.

A spokesman from VPS Evander said: 'VPS247 [the company's residential arm] is a national company but we've been an active member of the local community in Norwich, with our head office there for over 30 years, and we're incredibly impressed by the work EACH does.
