Peter Diffley, managing director at Crest Nicholson Eastern said: “The money raised through our fundraising events will provide vital equipment to disadvantaged children across the country including a much-needed Sunshine coach. We’re very proud that this money will be going to such a worthwhile cause. Variety has been our charity partner for over a decade and we look forward to continue to work with them to support the fantastic work they do.”
