A Chinese restaurant in Market Harborough has presented a cheque for money it raised to help an orphanage in Kenya.
During the Chinese New Year celebrations in February, Philip Tsui and his wife, Han, of Han Chinese Cuisine, in St Mary’s Road, raised about £900 and generously donated the funds to the Diani Children’s Village (DCV) in Ukunda.
Sue and Ian Milne, from Market Harborough, have been raising funds for the orphanage for nearly 10 years and have visited it on several occasions.
Mrs Milne said: “Han’s wonderful efforts are greatly appreciated and the money will do so much for the children.
“We keep in regular touch with DCV so know how vital this is.
“With the recent increases in terrorism in and around Kenya, travel there is very restricted for now.
“Kenya and its people rely on tourism for their main income, so less travel equals less visitors equals less income.
“Therefore the needs for the orphanage are ever increasing.”
