Softcat, which has its headquarters on Fieldhouse Lane in the town, raised the money through hosting several fun virtual activities, across their nine offices in the UK.

Made up of 25, activities such as the Ice Bucket Challenge, a FIFA tournament, coin spinning, planking and raffle, were just some of the many that occurred in the week before Children in Need took place, which was on Friday, November 13.

Other challenges saw the Senior Leadership Team Directors getting dressed up as characters from Frozen in a bid to raise money for the cause, with the Marlow office raising an incredible £6,000.

Graeme Watt, CEO of Softcat, said: “Children in Need is a fantastic charity that provides financial aid to UK projects that support disadvantaged young people - it is a charity very close to our heart and so we were again very keen to do our bit.
