Chinese New Year celebrations for the civic charity at Riverbank Chinese Buffet Restaurant on Riverside.

More than £6,600 was raised for charity at Riverbank Chinese Buffet Restaurant on Riverside last night.

Guests at the Chinese New Year charity dinner enjoyed a buffet and traditional Chinese lion dance, with Lord Mayor Tom Dylan and Sheriff Derek James hosting the dinner for 150 guests.

Local businesses and organisations donated prizes and lots for a tombola and auction, with funds raised going to this year’s civic charity, Rotary House for the Deaf.

The highest selling auction lot of the evening, raising £270, was a night at Holiday Inn Norwich North for a dinner dance tribute night.

The Lord Mayor said: “It was a really colourful and loud evening with the lion dance. We are most grateful to the owners of the Riverbank, the many generous donations from local businesses and organisations and all our guests who attended, helping to raise a wonderful amount for Rotary House.”
