Ark H Christmas market in Wilstead.

Christmas came early for warehouse staff as they held a seasonal market to raise funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

More than £5,000 was collected for the Disasters Emergency Committee as Ark-H hosted festive stalls selling items donated by clients, suppliers and staff from its headquarters based at Wilstead Industrial Park, Wilstead.

Alongside the sale, there was a sponsored head shave and a silent auction for larger items.

Group sales and marketing manager Neil Horton said: “The company makes regular donations to local charities but the plight of the people in Philippines moved us to hold this fund raiser.”

The Christmas market was held on Friday, December 6.

The Ark-H Group provides handling and fulfilment services to a multinational client base, and operates from its head office in Wilstead and regional operation in Diss, Norfolk.
