Namaste Village in Norwich is hosting a fundraiser in the form of an unlimited buffet meal on May 18 as they look to raise money to help supply more oxygen to India as they battle Covid-19.
Vijay Jetani, the owner of Namaste Village, said: "It's already a difficult situation that might become more difficult, so we want to play our part.
“There is a problem so we looked to see what we could do to help out.
