Charity Curry Nights in 2013 at the Bombay Lounge, Peatmoor & Old Town

1st November 2013 by Roger Ogle

bombay loungeThe charity curry nights every Monday and Tuesday evenings at the Bombay Lounge restaurant at Peatmoor Village Centre in West Swindon, in association with Swindon Link magazine, have raised nearly £50,000 for good causes since they were launched in February 2008.

Charity nights are now available on Tuesdays at the Bombay Lounge Restaurant in Devizes Road, Old Town. Click here if you prefer that venue.

For Peatmoor

See the list below for amounts raised in 2012 and 2011. Click here to see the range of organisations which enjoyed charity nights in 2010 and the amounts that were raised.

Proprietor Hanif Robani, pictured above by Richard Wintle of Calyx, is pleased to have handed over profits during this time. "It's really great to see groups having a good time socially at the Bombay Lounge. But I must stress, the Monday and Tuesday charity nights are not  exclusive nights just for the groups. Anybody can book a table for an evening out, but they'll know that some of what they're paying for their meal will benefit that evening's good cause. And, of course, you can come back and visit from Wednesday to Sunday; we really look forward to welcoming you."

How much you raise depends on how many people attend on the night.

If you can ensure a minimum of 22 supporters who would like to raise money by enjoying a curry, then mail SwindonLink at: publisher@swindonlink.com to book an evening, or call 01793 608840. 

Once the Charity Night is confirmed, get organising amongst group members and supporters and book your tables directly with the restaurant on 01793 887799.
