The proceeds from a charity dinner dance at Witham Paint have taken the company’s running fundraising total for good causes beyond the £75,000 mark.

The £4,255 collected by the oil and paint company will be split between six charities chosen by its employees in Lowestoft, Soham and Lincoln.

They are Arthritis Research UK, British Heart Foundation, Brain Tumour Research, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Leukaemia UK, Lincoln 27th Scout Group.

The company has been hosting its annual dinner dance since January 1993 and also runs an auction and a raffle.

Nigel Bottom, Witham Group managing director, said the company was proud.

“Our teams, customers and suppliers have done a tremendous job and have been very generous raising thousands of pounds that will improve the lives of people across the UK,” he added.
