Rennie Grove Hospice Care provides support for adults and children with life-limiting illnesses, and has recently received a £5,800 donation from Hemel Hempstead manufacturers, Origin.

The company, who greatly exceeded their original £2,000 target, hosted various events throughout the week including nail bars, table tennis tournaments, panini sales, a quiz night, and an auction.

Employees unleashed their inner child by coming to work in school uniform, or as a superhero.

Rennie Grove chief executive, Stewart Marks, said: "The Rennie Grove and Origin charity week was an overwhelming success and we are delighted at the incredible amount of money that the team at Origin raised."
