Cambridge China Centre Fund Raising “Chinese New Year” (Cambridge Stands with Wuhan) Gala Dinner 2020


This special fundraising (Cambridge Stands with Wuhan) Chinese New Year Gala Dinner was held in Tamburlaine Hotel on 28th January 2020. The dinner and reception not only provided an intimate space for leading business professionals, industry experts, investors to make connections, network and gain insights into Chinese culture but also launched “Cambridge Stands with Wuhan” fundraising campaign. The outbreak of Novel Coronavirus is devastating and China is at the frontline of this severe battle. China is doing everything it could trying to contain the outbreak. Facing this ‘grave situation’, Cambridge China Centre and Cambridge Chinese Community Centre call for all organisations and individuals for urgent donations to help Wuhan and other 14 quarantined cities in Hubei Province.

At the drink reception, all the guests gave their best wishes to Wuhan and hope China will get through this tough time as soon as possible.

Chinese Famous Lanting College of Calligraphy Professor Xiaomin Su especially presented one of his writing scroll “福兴仁合,德曰素明” and the money went to the fundraising campaign.
