A spokesman for Dyno Plumbing, which is part of British Gas, said: "We wanted to do something to help local people in need. We chose the Redbridge Foodbank as it is a part of the Trussell Trust, a well-known network of foodbanks across the UK, providing food parcels to individuals and families from all walks of life and the tireless work their volunteers do every day.
"We want to thank all of our staff for raising £1,070, particularly those who fasted and all the colleagues, family and friends who sponsored them for every day they fasted."
The Trussell Trust, founded in 2004 and now has a network of 428 foodbanks, supports communities and churches to open foodbanks across the UK.
