Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity signature fundraiser, THE BIG CURRY set to return to Durham


Oct 27, 2017 #Big Curry, #charity

On Friday 20th October a spicy fundraiser will be taking place from 12 noon at Durham based charity Finchale’s headquarters in Pity Me, to raise money for soldiers and veterans in need of assistance across the region.

For the second year running organisers from Finchale are extending a ‘hot’ invitation to diners to join them for a bit of fun and a relaxed opportunity to enjoy some fantastic food whilst making a difference.  All proceeds from the event will go to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the National Charity of the British Army providing support to soldiers, veterans and their families.

Andy Wildish, Veterans Services and Operations Manager at Finchale said:

“We’re appealing for individuals and businesses to dig deep for our Big Curry fundraising event with the added benefit of helping soldiers, veterans and their families from our community. We are hoping to raise as much money as we possibly can for this important charity and we’re looking forward to seeing lots of people coming along on the day.

Finchale have worked with the support of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity over the past 4 years providing tailored support to veterans from the North East of England to enable them to move from social exclusion into sustained employment and we’re proud to be hosting a second Big Curry Event as a way of saying thank you whilst supporting the work they do to provide funding and support for Army veterans.”

On the day there will be a range of curries and accompaniments all freshly prepared by The Kitchen, onsite at Finchale. Amongst other things diners will be offered an opportunity to take part in a game of chilli cookie roulette. There will also be a raffle to raise more funds.

Booking for the fundraising event is essential. To reserve a place, find out more, or to simply make a donation if you can’t make it, please call Chris Lloyd on 0191 386 2634 or email chris.lloyd@finchale.org
