Potters Bar office staff raise cash for Help for Heroes

CHARITABLE staff showed their support to our Armed Forces by staging a special fundraising event.

UK Power Networks employees based at the Potters Bar office in Darkes Lane held a charity day to raise money for Help for Heroes.

Colleagues sold home-made cakes, paid �1 each to wear red, white and blue, and held a raffle – managing to raise �814.

Organiser Angela Bumstead, a personal assistant, said: “This was the second time that we have raised money for Help for Heroes and everybody who has been involved agreed that our boys and girls need support.

“We had great fun raising funds for such a worthwhile cause.”
