Amey’s Community and Communications Manager Jessica Masterton said: “Amey’s goal is to create better places to live, work and travel by giving back to the areas and communities where we work.

“Through asking staff to nominate local causes that are close to their hearts, this initiative allows both our staff and Amey as a wider company to make a real difference within their communities.

“We were delighted to make a donation to CHAS which we hope will help them continue the great work they already do.”

CHAS Community Fundraiser Lyndsay Stobie said: “We are so grateful to Amey for their support and would like to say a special thank you to the employees who nominated CHAS to receive this funding.
