The Ipswich Hotel has kicked off a year of fundraising for Papworth Trust by hosting a grand dinner and dance which raised £5,700.
The lavish black-tie event, held to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the disability charity, saw more than 120 people attend and enjoy a three-course dinner, live band, disco, raffle and auction. Papworth Trust offers essential support and care to disabled and older people, their families and carers.
General manager at the hotel, Rameth Kurdi, said: “We decided to support Papworth Trust after visiting the charity’s Ipswich Centre and speaking to staff and meeting people supported by the centre.
“It was very inspiring and it made me want to support Papworth Trust for the next year.”
The hotel will also be making a donation to support the charity’s services in Ipswich via a new monthly networking event Swichon.
