Sweet taste of Success for Restaurant’s Hospital Scanner Charity dinner
CHARITY has never tasted so good after a restaurant raised over £2,000 for Burton’s Queens Hospital Scanner Appeal.
More than a hundred people from many different walks of life and from across the Midlands region attended a special Charity Dinner event held at the Apne India Cuisine – a newly opened Indian and Bangladeshi Restaurant in Burton upon Trent.
Those attending not only experienced the very finest authentic Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine but also raised more than £2,100 for the Queen’s Hospital Scanner Appeal.
The dinner was attended by a host of distinguished guests including Dr Saeed Khan Mohmand, Consul General of Pakistan, Cllr. Richard Grosvenor, Leader of East Staffordshire Borough Council and the Mayo and Mayoress of East Staffordshire Cllr. David and Liz Leese.
Jim Morrison, Chairman of the Queen’s Hospital gave an insight into the progress made towards the £500,000 target by the end of April 2011 to purchase a new CT Scanner. He told the audience that £480,000 had already been raised.
Mohammed Jamil , Event Co-ordinator, said: “I would like to thank everyone for their valuable support in making the event both enjoyable and a huge success. I am especially grateful to Azmal Hussain and his hardworking staff at the Apne India Cuisine.”
Mr Jamil and his colleagues are now preparing to raise funds for Midlands Air Ambulance.
