Event will raise funds for children's hospital

Wong Ting restaurant, in Sheffield, will host ‘Wong Ting’s Got Talent’ next month - an open talent show with all funds going to the charity’s Make It Better appeal, to fund the building of a brand new hospital wing.

Helen Lee, manager at Wong Ting restaurant in the city centre, said: “We want to do it for Sheffield. We are a Sheffield family, a Sheffield restaurant and we want to support children in Sheffield.”

The event, on February 12, will include a three-course meal and entertainment from children of the Chinese School Association. Those wishing to take part in the talent show can enter right up until the night itself.
