Eating report: fund raising curry night 2011

Meeting curry and beer.

This was our second fund raising curry night (See the photos from last year).

The Bombay Lounge restaurant (at Peatmoor) and Swindon Link magazine offer community groups, charities and good causes the chance to raise money whilst enjoying a great curry. The owner Hanif donates all profits from the night to the club. We also held a raffle. We sold a lot of tickets on the night, aided by the prizes that were generously donated by supporting companies, generally those who offer club members a discount. There were 43 prizes and with around 50 people present it was almost one prize per person.

The event took the format of an “all you could eat buffet” for £12.50 per person.
