Discount retailer Lathams of Potter Heigham, has raised £1588 during its 60th anniversary celebrations for the Museum of The Broads. The money will be used to fund the restoration of a historic boat once owned by Lathams’ founder Ken Latham.

Lathams raised the funds by hosting a charity auction as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations last month. A Norfolk institution, Lathams is famous for its fishing tackle and supplies, as well as discounted homewares, furniture, food, clothing, DIY and pet departments. The store was first opened by Ken Latham in 1963 as a ‘piscatorial paradise’, a homage to his love for fishing on The Broads, and quickly became popular with local people and holidaymakers alike. When Ken retired in February 1989, Lathams joined the family-run Norfolk discount group QD, who has since expanded the premises and built a dedicated Lathams Fishing Tackle shop opposite the main store.
