Wisbech, Wednesday, 13 March 2019 - Anglia Components, the Wisbech-based electronic component distributor, is presenting cheques totalling £8000 to two very well regarded local good causes: The Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre and The Helping Hands Group.

Steve Rawlins, Anglia’s CEO commented “Many of our staff are from Wisbech and the surrounding area and we feel that it’s vital to give back to the community in which we live and work. These two very worthwhile organisations make a huge difference to the lives of people with serious illnesses and disabilities and we are proud to be able to support them. Several staff have had experience of their work, as family members have benefitted from the care of one or other of these organisations.”

Nearly £3000 was donated directly by the staff themselves through raffles and other fund-raising activities – the balance being contributed by the company. A year ago, Anglia Components streamlined its charitable activities to focus on two local organisations each year. The two are chosen through a staff ballot.

 

The Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre, based at North Cambridgeshire Hospital in Wisbech, is a day centre supporting people who are living with a life-limiting illness. The Helping Hands Group offers Further Education, Personal Development, Day Opportunities, Work Experience and Supported Living for adults in Wisbech and the surrounding areas with a wide range of learning/physical disabilities including Autism, Sensory Impairment, Brain Injury, PMLD and Asperger’s Syndrome. Each good cause receives £4000.
