Homestyle, the Martlesham-based producer of windows and conservatories, has pledged to raise £10,000 for St Elizabeth Hospice by donating £20 per customer and organising a series of fundraising events based on the pig it has sponsored as part of the Pigs Gone Wild tourist trail fundraiser this summer.

Homestyle’s owner, Graham Shemmings, has pledged to donate £5 per visitor to their showroom and £20 for each new order placed from March through to when the trail ends in early September.

In addition Graham is organising a 5-a-side football tournament, a Golf Day and family barbecue at Seckford Golf Club, and a cake baking competition which will be judged by David and Lindsay Wright from Woodbridge Cake Shop with a live final between the top two bakers taking place at Anglia Factors showroom in Martlesham.
