A SUPPORTIVE labelling machinery company got into the fundraising spirit by raising £1,200 for Children in Need.

Premier Labellers, in Bathside Bay, asked its employees to set up a Bring and Buy sale on Friday, November 15 which contributed towards the final donation.

Employees dug deep into their pockets and raised £1,200 in just one hour.

A spokesman for the Premier Labellers said: “We also got involved with the Children in Need duck race in which the winner won a meal for two kindly donated by The Hanover Inn, in Harwich.

“Working with local businesses in our community is so easy to do and extremely beneficial when fundraising or collaborating to achieve something great, so if any other businesses would like to work with us, let us know your ideas and we would love to help out.”

Premier Labellers design and manufacture industrial labelling machinery for companies such as Holland and Barrett, Boots and Brewdog, to provide high quality labelling solutions for their production process.
