Mayor's charity curry night

Published: 25 Feb 2012 07:30

THE mayor's next fundraising event for a charity that supports older people will be an Indian buffet next month.

Cllr Chris Turrell, Mayor of Bracknell Forest, has organised the event in Wokingham in aid of his charity of the year, Age Concern Bracknell Forest (ACBF), which runs a day centre in Forest Park as well as offering day trips and advice.

Cllr Turrell said: "People have been asking what my next event will be, and here it is! We are promised a tempting array of dishes, and this looks like being another very good evening at a good price. There will also be a raffle. Why not get together with friends and make up a table?"

The buffet will be held at the Tamarind Tree in Peach Street at 7.30pm on Monday, March 19. Tickets are £17.50 per person, available from Sue Brunt at the mayor's office via or 01344 352013.

The mayor's previous fundraising has included a masked ball at the Coppid Beech Hotel in Binfield on earlier this month that raised £1,300.
