SINGAPORE - Royal Plaza on Scotts' buffet restaurant Carousel celebrated its 10th anniversary with a pay-as-you-wish buffet lunch on Saturday (Feb 18), which saw people queueing up from as early as 6.30am to snag a seat.

According to a statement from the hotel, the restaurant welcomed a total of 307 guests, where patrons could pay any amount they wished to enjoy the spread from 12pm to 1.30pm.

As promised, the hotel has donated profits from the event to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, totalling $11,222. This amount is inclusive of a donation of $4,000 (the value of one membership fee) from The British Club.

The fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school.
