Willmott Dixon, a construction and repair and maintenance firm, donated £502 to the charity, raised through a barbecue held at the Lord Harrowby pub in Grantham – where the licencees let the firm use the pub for free – and a games and activities stall at the children’s fund’s own Festival of 
Excitement in August. A further £148 was raised from the auction of a Formula One mechanic’s jacket.

Virgin Trains donated £205.25 to the fund after holding an event near the station to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday earlier this year.

The charity’s chair of trustees Roy Wright said: “A big thank you goes to both firms for their generosity.”
