May 2000: A double charity success at Lynn’s Hardwick Industrial Estate factory of Multitone.

Members of the fault-finding team joined their colleague Kas Mahmood during the Muslim festival of Ramadan and for one day there was a ban on eating, drinking and smoking from daybreak to sunset, raising £104.

This was added to £1,040 raised by Tony Hunt (right) from his London Marathon effort, with the Multitone board donating a further £250 and the cheque was presented to Pam Carter of the West Norfolk fundraising committee. Photo: MLNF-000539515
