Enjoy an authentic Indian banquet…and raise money for charity

Posted on: February 10, 2011

If you enjoy eating out AND would like to support a fantastic cause while doing so, then reserve your place now for the Authentic Indian Banquet on Saturday, March 5th…

The Bristol and Bath Fundraising Group is a new fundraising committee set up as part of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. Made up of a network of volunteers, the team are working together to support and further the work of the charity through fundraising in Bristol and the surrounding areas.

The work of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is close to the heart of Bristol and Bath team leader, Khurm Arshad. “My younger brother, Auzair, suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. It is a life-limiting condition and makes the simplest of tasks like eating and dressing impossible to carry out without care. There is currently no known cure for muscular dystrophy.”

In order to raise funds for research into Duchenne at Oxford University, Khurm and his team have organised an authentic Indian banquet for the evening of Saturday, March 5th. With more than 12 traditional Indian dishes, entertainment, a cheap bar and over 100 guests, it promises to be a fantastic evening. Tickets are only £25 per head – further details at the bottom of this post…

The evening will also feature a raffle for £2 per ticket, with prizes donated by a variety of local companies. If you would like to show your support by donating a raffle prize, please leave a comment in the comments box below, or get in touch with the team directly using the contact details below.

This really is a fantastic cause, and a chance to enjoy a fabulous meal while giving something back in return. For more details, use the contact information below, or check out the group’s Facebook page.
