Tractor giants Claas’ centenary party at its Saxham base helped raise £500 and create a mural for West Suffolk Hospital Rainbow children’s ward.

The company held a family fun day when one attraction was a treasure hunt for children to find things to create the 6ft mural, which will go in the ward’s entrance.

The £500 was raised with a raffle and will be added to because Royal Bank of Scotland has promised £125 after hearing of Class’ fund raising.

Dawn Dorrington, acting paediatric unit manager, said: “Every penny of the money donated will be used to improve the quality of care we offer to our young patients, while the mural will certainly brighten up the entrance.”
