The event at the Thomas Paine Hotel in Thetford will see proceeds split between East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and Thetford and District Dementia Support.

Gez Chetal, who owns the hotel, said: “We’re really looking forward to raising more funds this year. It’s always a pleasure to donate monies to worthy causes, especially when you’re enjoying yourself, with our special guests adding a touch of spice for the night.”

Last year’s charity dinner raised more than £1,600 for EACH.

The dinner on Friday, March 30 will start at 7pm. Tickets are £35 per person, a fee that includes a three-course set meal.

Singer Lucia Matisse will also provide entertainment.
