Colleagues and friends walked from Cromer pier to Norwich to raise £1,200 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) nook appeal.

The group from Plastic Building Supplies (PBS) was joined on the 25-mile (40km) walk by Grant Peruzzi from DMD Installations.

PBS is celebrating its 30th year in business and the specialist supplier of PVCu building materials, with branches in Norwich, King’s Lynn, Gorleston and Thetford, had raised more than £12,000 for the nook appeal before the walk and over £66,000 for EACH generally.

Shaun Brookes, PBS sales coordinator, said: “It felt great to complete the 10-hour walk. A few blisters and bumps were had along the way, but it was worth it to support such a wonderful charity.”

PBS will be raising more money for the nook appeal at its 30th anniversary dinner in October, to be attended by 160 to 200 members of staff, suppliers and customers.
