TWENTY-FOUR charities will benefit from a £10,000 windfall – raised by staff doing their bit to help the planet.

Staff at Southern Electric in Penner Road, Havant, took part in a green challenge at work.

They shared cars to work, cut down on the amount of paper being printed, used video conferencing for meetings, and used the train for work journeys.

Staff were rewarded for their eco-friendly behaviour with the cash.

St Peter’s Theatre Trust, which is campaigning to save the Southsea theatre from closure, was one of the major benefactors, receiving more than £1,700.

Other charities to benefit will be the Rainbow centre in Fareham (£153), British Heart Foundation (£1,431), Cat and Rabbit Rescue (£200), Off The Record (£118), The Rowans Hospice (£944), Stubbington Ark (£631), Honeypot (£2,896), Oxfam (£652) and Cancer Research (£395).

Money will also go to Kick 4 Life, Children in Need, Springfield College and the Elephant Trust.

Matthew Nebbett, innovation team manager at Southern Electric, said: ‘It was great to see so many worthwhile charities receiving support.’
