A Diss opticians will be raising a glass to the drinkers of the Fat Cat Brewery, Norwich, after its celebratory brew raised more than £1,000 for charity.

The opticians are supporters of the charity Break and decided that with every pint sold in its first three months. 10p would go towards the charity.

With 14,500 pints pulled, £1,450 was raised for the East Anglian charity.

Dipple & Conway director Damian Conway said: “I was expecting to be writing a cheque for around £500.

“Instead we’re delighted to be giving our friends from Break around three times that. It’s astonishing, 14,500 pints is enough to fill a small swimming pool.”
