Charities backed by Ipswich mayor Sarah Barber have been boosted by £370 after a special curry night at the Maharani restaurant in Norwich Road.
Members of the council, from all parties, were joined by other civic leaders and guests from outside the town for the event which has been become a regular feature of the town’s calendar.
The event was hosted by Maharani proprietor Manik Miah and his staff.
Mrs Barber said: “It was a great night and I was delighted that it was supported not only by all sides of the council but also by many other friends in Ipswich.
“Enjoying delicious food and conversation is a great way to raise money for charity and I also want to thank Manik Miah and his staff for hosting another brilliant event.”
This year’s mayor’s charities in Ipswich are: FIND (Families In NeeD), Ipswich Lighthouse Women’s Aid, and the Ipswich Hospital Charity.
