Employees at pensions firm Curtis Banks are supporting a town charity which supports children and adults affected by domestic abuse.
Staff at the Ipswich branch of the firm - which also has offices in Bristol and Dundee and is one of the UK's largest independent Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP) providers - voted to support Lighthouse during 2020 and 2021.
Brian Ward, its chair of corporate social responsibility, said: "I have always been proud of the hard work and dedication that our staff put into raising money for charity.

Last year, staff at Ipswich raised nearly £8k towards chosen charity St Elizabeth Hospice and hope to do the same again for Lighthouse.
Sally Winston, chief executive of Lighthouse, said: "We are delighted to have been chosen as the charity of the year for Curtis Banks' Ipswich office for the next two years.
