Go Ape, based at High Lodge in Thetford Forest, has presented a children’s charity with £1,612 following a year of fundraising.

Staff at Go Ape chose East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) to be their charity of 2017.

They held cake sales and on-site competitions to raise the money, and also showed their support by hosting a group of families supported by the charity for a day in June.

Victoria Herbert, Go Ape site manager, said: “The team unanimously voted to support EACH as their charity for 2017 after hearing about its work.

“Everyone got into the fundraising spirit, with many evenings spent baking biscuits and cake decorating.

EACH cares for more than 360 children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the region.
