EWD’s Cancer Research campaign comes after the successful completion of traning for a guide dog, Edward, who was sponsored by the company. Edward has now been placed with an owner to provide assistance.

The Brightlingsea-based company will be recording the progress of the Cancer Research UK campaign with monthly updates on its webiste at www.easternwastedisposal.co.uk .
