Software firm Kamarin Computers, of Welbeck Way, Woodston, has set up a charity committee to help raise thousands of pounds for good causes.

The committee has been tasked with creating a series of fundraising initiatives.

Kamarin has vowed to match target amounts raised.

It is providing a budget for planning events and allowing each employee to dedicate two normal working days per year to charity efforts.

Shadeen Warner-Bell chairs the committee, which includes three colleagues, Nicki Smith, Josh Ashton and Farrah Twigg.

The group has already organised a Valentine’s Day raffle, raising £300.

It is planning a golf tournament and a pub quiz.

One of the causes the committee has chosen to support is the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).

Managing director George Smith said: “Raising money for charity is very important to us.

“If employees choose who we raise money for and come up with their own ideas as to how we go about it, this will create high levels of engagement and innovation.”

He added: “Setting up a charity committee has other benefits too, including developing its members teamwork and organisational skills. All have joined on a purely voluntary basis and have a genuine passion for helping other people. I am enormously proud of them.”
