STAFF from a Portsmouth firm handed over the proceeds from its 25th anniversary fundraiser to Help for Heroes to mark Armistice Day.

Dedicated employees at McAndrew Martin chartered surveyors, engineers and architects presented £785 to the charity’s local co-ordinator Kim Brindley.

The money was raised at the company’s 25th anniversary celebration at the Spinnaker Tower earlier this year.

Kim, who is a former Royal Navy warfare officer, said: ‘It was an honour to receive this donation on behalf the charity and all of the wounded heroes it helps.

‘Every penny will go towards helping wounded members of the armed forces returning from action.’

Kim and McAndrew Martin staff observed a two-minute silence at their Dundas Lane offices before the presentation.

Ian Lee, a director at McAndrew Martin, said: ‘As a company in a naval city, we always try and support Help for Heroes. Our thanks go to everyone who helped to raise the money at the Spinnaker Tower at our anniversary celebrations.’
