Superstar staff at Fields have raise more than £25,000 over the last decade as part of their in-house fundraising for Devon based charities.
The results were revealed at the store’s annual ‘Fafta’ ceremony on Tuesday, where it was announced £2,330 had been raised for Sidmouth Hospiscare.
The total is raised through a range of events, with employee Jan Pooley recognised for her weekly bakes raising £300.
The money will be used by Sidmouth Hospiscare to increase its nursing team and new day care centre.
Gill Ryall, the charity’s CEO, said: “It will make a huge difference.
