BOSSES from a Greenock-based company and former boxing world champion David Haye teamed up to raise over £100,000 for charity.

The annual Action for Children Scotland sports dinner, sponsored by local firm PG Paper, took place in Glasgow recently featuring 'The Hayemaker' as a knockout special guest.

The event packed a proper punch - with £108,000 raised for the charity during the night at the city's Hilton Hotel.

The event is sponsored by Custom House company PG Paper - run by Kilmacolm businessman Puneet Gupta and wife Poonam - and Mr Gupta is also heavily involved in organising the annual spectacle.

Over 700 people attended the 2018 gala dinner and helped set a new fundraising record.

Mr Gupta, who is also on the organising committee, said: "The event was a huge success and we are again bowled over by the generosity of all of our guests; it is both humbling and heartening.

"PG Paper has sponsored the event since 2010 and the dinner - which was attended by over 700 guests - has been our biggest and most successful in terms of fundraising, to date."

This year's total has now taken the amount raised since the company has been involved to over £750,000.

The dinner was hosted by top after-dinner speaker and sports pundit, Peter Martin, who had the audience in stitches as he conducted games, raffles and the grand auction.

The TV and radio presented interviewed recently-retired Haye about his decision to hang up his gloves and his glittering career, including fulfilling his childhood dream in 2009 when he defeated Nikolai Valuev to become the heavyweight champion of the world.

All funds raised on the night will go to support some of the country's most disadvantaged youngsters.

Mr Gupta said: "We are delighted to play our part in supporting Action for Scotland's vital work with children, young people and families throughout the country.

"On behalf of the PG Paper team, I would like to send a genuine, heartfelt thank you to all of our guests who joined us this evening and made it such a huge success."
