The team at Lead Forensics has raised funds for the Stop Domestic Abuse (SDA) in Havant by holding a series of dress down days. 

Staff were charged £1 per day to wear their casual clothes and the firm matched every £1 donated by the team.

This meant that more than 80 presents worth £2,000 were donated.

Claire Lambon, CEO of the SDA, said: '˜Some of these children have been brought up to feel worthless.

'˜For them to know that other people who don't know them have bought them a present is amazing. Lead Forensics is proud to be in a position to help such an important local cause and encourage people to give what they can this Christmas to those less fortunate.'
