Now in its 19th year, National Curry Week 2016 again invites not only curry restaurants, caterers, pubs, canteens etc, all over Britain but also the curry loving public who wish to dine at home with a takeaway or a prepared meal. We invite both the dine in and dine out sectors to celebrate the cuisine and culture with special dinners, record-breaking attempts, raffles, auctions and, where possible, to contribute to the alleviation of poverty and suffering in South Asia and worldwide particularly Water Projects with 1.4 million children dying from water-related diseases every year. (register free now) and the Find Your Feet Charity helping families build a future free from poverty and Action Against Hunger (special hungryhouse donation). Donations were also made to other charities such as ABF The Soldiers Charity by The Maypole Inn, Taunton, the Sue Ryder Charity from Chak 89 in Mitcham, Katharine House Hospice from Bengal Spice in Deddington and Sightsavers Charity from Tamarind Northampton. .

All we ask restaurants to do is celebrate the week in which we acknowledge curry in Britain each year and, if possible, set aside a special evening where the proceeds go to The Curry Tree Charitable Fund which, last year, focused on Find Your Feet Charity or any charity of your choice.

This year for those who cannot wait until October we are supporting the Curry for Change campaign, run by the charity Find Your Feet – one of our recommended charity partners. Curry for Change is the fundraising campaign that uses people’s love of curry to help change the lives of rural families in Asia and Africa who suffer from hunger. You can dine out visit one of their restaurant partners or sign up to cook a curry and help families fight hunger. Sign up to get involved and receive a free event pack and spices, then host your curry evening with friends and family and invite them to donate what they would usually spend on a takeaway.

In terms of donations: We are able to take donations directly from restaurants so if you feel this would be an effective way of us receiving funds, then please ask those interested in supporting us to get in touch and visit - www.curryforchange.org.uk/donate
