Peco and Lloyds raise �1,000 for diabetes charities
Pecorama helped raise more than �1,000 for a local diabetes charity with the help of Lloyds bank and a special football match.
The staff at Peco’s factory played a charity football match against local rival manufacture Axminster Power Tools, and threw a barbecue on Beer beach to raise the money.
They wanted to thank Sue Abbott of Chappell tea hut for the use of benches, which helped them raise �523 for Diabetes UK and ‘Snackpacks’.
The bank Lloyds TSB had pledged to double whatever Pecorama managed to raise, lifting the total to �1,023.
The money will go to both the national diabetes charity, and also to ‘Snackpacks’, an Exeter child diabetics group who support children with type one diabetes organising days out and weekends away.
