"I never thought I'd raise so much money and I can't thank everyone across all the offices enough. I don't know if they realise what they've done; they have helped save several lives and they have also improved the lives of cystic fibrosis sufferers. I'm so pleased to be part of this."

Phil Moy, partner at the branch, said "Our employees have raised £5,190.54 in the last year for a number of different charities across the region, which is a great effort all round."

The firm has 340 employees who contributed to the fund-raiser.
