Curry House Helps Our Heroes

By Micheal McKenna

CURRY connoisseurs felt the heat on Friday night as they helped raise £3000 for the ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

The Indian Ocean, Tameside hosted the Big Charity Night with special guest Jennie Bonita.

The annual event was attended by over 100 guests who were treated to a three course meal and a live performance from songstress Jennie Bonita.

Nahim Aslam, owner of the Indian Ocean said: “Our Big Curry Charity Night is a fantastic opportunity to raise money for our brave soldiers.

“So much is asked of these heroic men and women. We only need to look in a newspaper to see the effects that the current conflicts are having and this is our way of giving something back to them.”

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has been giving lifetime support to each and every serving and retired soldier and their families for more than 66 years.

They help in various areas from debt relief to education bursaries. The Big Curry is an annual fundraising campaign from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

Mr Aslam, said: “The night was absolutely fantastic, everyone really enjoyed themselves and I’m so proud to have been a part of it.

“The money is going to a great cause, no doubt about that.”

The Indian Ocean has been awarded the best curry house in the North West for the last three consecutive years by The British Curry Awards
