QE raises thousands of pounds for charity

Suffolk-based pig building and equipment company, Quality Equipment, has raised £12,810 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, the charity which provides a helicopter emergency medical service for people in East Anglia.

The company raised this money at various events which took place in 2015 to celebrate its 50th anniversary year and the total exceeded its £10,000 target.

Quality Equipment chose to support the East Anglian Air Ambulance because it rescued the company’s founder, Glyn Baker, from a life-threatening situation when he had an accident on a farm some years ago.

Patrick Peak, EAAA Chief Executive said: “We are extremely grateful for the support and we would like to say a huge thank you to Quality Equipment for their donations which will allow EAAA to continue its life-saving work.”

QE Staff Compete in Mud Run for Charity

Quality Equipment has always prided itself on being a down-to-earth company. This was certainly the case for seven members of staff who got their hands – and everything else – dirty while taking part in the Only The Brave mud obstacle run. The event took place at Elveden Estates, near Thetford on Sunday 2nd April.

The aim was to raise £500 for the company’s favoured charity, the East Anglian Air Ambulance service. Pledges at over £1,000 have more than doubled this sum. A team of seven took part, plus two non-QE staff, with some tackling the five-mile and others braving the ten-mile course with over 40 obstacles!
