One of Harborough’s biggest firms presented a cheque to the injured soldiers’ charity Help for Heroes for an impressive £6,505.63.

CDS Global, which employs around 300 people, raised money for Help for Heroes throughout 2014.

Every year the company, chooses a charity to support and 2014 saw the turn of Help for Heroes.

The process outsourcing and customer data management company organised numerous events for this worthy cause including quizzes, sales, barbecues and fancy dress days.

The annual sports day also boosted the total. The fundraising was organised by the firm’s Employee Action Group, comprised of staff who all volunteer their time.

A cheque presentation ceremony was held at its Lathkill Street base last Friday.

Luke Farnsworth, a client executive at the firm, said: “The whole of CDS Global are incredibly proud of the money raised.”
