Staff from Grantham company TMS Support Solutions Ltd were delighted to be able to support two charities again in 2016.

Throughout the year, staff raised money for the type 1 diabetes charity JDRF and the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance by putting their baking skills to the test with numerous ‘bake offs’, selling old mobile phones and finishing off with a Christmas raffle.

Andy Smith, TMS’s operations director, said: “Once again our staff have raised a magnificent amount of money. This year we’ve raised £800 which has allowed us to support the work of these two important charities.”

Cheques were recently presented to representatives from each charity – Jayme Balossino, Midlands regional fund-raiser for JDRF and Jeannie Priest, a volunteer with the air ambulance. Both were delighted with their cheques.

Andy said: “It was interesting and thought provoking to hear about the work of both these charities; the ground-breaking research of JDRF and daily life saving missions of the air ambulance.”
