An Ashby company raised almost £14,000 for charity last year.
Finch Consulting, an engineering and health and safety risk management company, celebrated their 30th year in business in 2022.
And it committed to raising much needed funds for the local branch of Mind to give something back to the community.
Over the year the company - based at the Ivanhoe Business Park - completed a series of fundraising activities including bake sales, walking 1,000 miles in a month, an indoor team skydive and the Derbyshire Three Peaks.
Dom Barraclough, the Managing Director, also took on the gruelling challenge of a west to east coast bike ride across England in just three days.
Marketing specialist Stephanie Dennis said: "We were really keen to do something positive as a company to celebrate our 30th year, and fundraising for a local branch of a national charity bought a lot of fulfilment to us.
"We thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities we completed to raise money.
"We chose Burton & District Mind as everyone has mental health to look after, and mental health services are severely underfunded in comparison to services for physical conditions.
"We're very proud to announce that the total sum raised is £13,848.04p to be exact."
Burton & District Mind commented: "We wanted to say a massive thank you to every single member of the Team at Finch Consulting, for all your fundraising achievements during 2022.
"You have all worked tirelessly and it's very much appreciated by everyone at Burton & District Mind."
