More than 100 guests attended a fundraising evening at Spice Lounge, in the town’s High Street, on Monday, January 21, with the money going to the Priory School, in Mount Road, Bury St Edmunds.

Jay Ali, restaurant owner, constructed a menu giving guests a taste of traditional Banglasdeshi cuisine.

Mr Ali said: “The charity fundraising event was a huge success, as well as our loyal local customers, we had people travelling from as far as Ipswich, Norwich and Cambridge to attend and support this wonderful cause.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who attended, the staff at Priory School for their cooperation and the team at Spice Lounge for all of their hard work to make the night a success.
