An auction to raise money to help some of the poorest City College Norwich students has raised more than £20,000.

Members of the business community were treated to a lavish meal at the college’s Debut Restaurant before bidding for lots, including two tickets to the filming of the BBC’s panel show QI and a chat with Stephen Fry, to a 12 person box for a Norwich City Premier League match. The event was held to raise funds to help students with the costs of education for things like transport.

College principal Dick Palmer said: “It is a great result. Just over £20, 000 was raised. Over three times above the amount we raised last time and around £5,000 more than we had hoped.”

He said the people of Norfolk were fantastic.
