A Norfolk housebuilder has given support to city-based Priscilla Bacon Lodge.

The staff at Persimmon Homes Anglia went beyond their fundraising target of £5,000 to support the Priscilla Bacon Lodge.

Throughout 2023, they put on a range of initiatives, from dress down days and bake sales, to wild swim challenges.

Even on the year's hottest day, a team partook in the Tour De Broads, collecting donations and sponsorship for the hospice charity.
