A George Michael tribute act and special celebrity guest helped a Thetford hotel raise £2,000 at its most recent charitable event.
The Thomas Paine Hotel hosted a dinner to raise money for three chosen charities, including the Princes Trust, New-u and Thetford and District Dementia support Group (Tadds).
Money was raised through tickets bought for the event and a raffle and auction that took place on the night, through donations from businesses and the hotel.
Guests were thrilled by a George Michael performer and lookalike and were able to meet the lead singer of the band 911, Jimmy Constable.
Gez Chetal, owner of the hotel said: "Altogether we raised just over £2,000 for the charities, each receiving £667. It was a brilliant event enjoyed by all."
The next charity dinner is due to be held October 25, this time with a Rod Stewart tribute act, supporting the same three charities. Tickets are on sale now for £35, which includes a three-course dinner.
