Indian food banquet for charity, 5 March, Bristol

An authentic Indian banquet on Saturday, 5 March, will include 12 traditional Indian dishes, entertainment, a cheap bar and over 100 guests in what promises to be a fantastic evening. The social event will also be raising money for research into muscular dystrophy with tickets selling for £25 per head.

Kharum Arshad, and his team from the Bristol and Bath Fundraising Group, have organised the evening in order to raise funds for research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at Oxford University.

Helping to raise funds for this “life-limiting condition” is a personal cause for Arshad  as his younger brother Auzair has the disease which “makes the simplest of tasks like eating and dressing impossible to carry out without care.”

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

There is a raffle for £2 per ticket, with prizes donated by a variety of local companies. Please leave a comment below if you would like to show your support by donating a raffle prize or get in touch with the team directly using the contact details below.
