Big-hearted post workers are first class
VOLUNTEERS from the Royal Mail have once again banded together to raise money for a host of local charities.
The Royal Mail Community Action Committee donated over £10,000 pounds to a total of seven charities, with St Luke's Hospice receiving the biggest donation.
Other benefiting charities included Help For Heroes, Children's Hospice South West and Gables Farm Dogs and Cats Home.
Brendan Maloney, events co-ordinator for the Royal Mail Community Action Team, praised the team for their effort.

"The staff all got together to nominate their favourite charities. They worked really hard. We organised lots of different events such as sponsored walks and a masquerade ball, but the majority of the money came from employees donating directly from their own pay.
The committee has been running for 26 years and has already donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to various causes. It represents a real cross-section of the company, with contributors including part timers all the way to senior management. Brendan even expects to add a further £400 to that total in the next week or so.
One man at the presentation, Geoff Barry, organised his own sponsored walk and raised over £650 for Help the Heroes.
