On February 14th we held the CCC Chinese New Year Party at the Golden Dragon Restaurant in Chinatown. We were very lucky to have many of our wonderful members and generous donors in attendance to celebrate together.
Hippodrome Casino who generously sponsored our marquee pitch at Trafalgar Square last Sunday joined our party. We are happy to report we raised over £2500 pounds at CNY which would not have been possible without their help.
We also wish to express our gratitude to Shaftesbury PLC who we are delighted to say will be partially funding our Information and Advice Officer post for the next 3 years. This is a vital service at the centre and just one of many things Shaftesbury do for us.
Jeremy Cummins from Horizons Casino also previously worked to have one of these posts sponsored for us and continues to support the centre in other ways. Raffle prizes for our New Year party were donated by Genting Casino and Horizons Casino.
Zhu Xiao Jiu, the president of the UK Society of Chinese Lawyers also came along to celebrate at the Golden Dragon also and we thank her for her ongoing hard work on the pro-bono project.
Guests on the day enjoyed tasty dim-sum and won some great prizes including a digital photo frame, Fortnum & Mason Champagne and Chocolates, hair straighteners, red wine and much more!
