Portsmouth's Gets It's First Big Curry Lunch

Source: The Akash

It's to honour the service of Portsmouth's Armed Forces.

 The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch in London is in its 12th year in 2019 and a group of organisations and businesses in the Portsmouth area have been working hard to bring the concept to the ‘home of the Royal Navy’.
The lunch will take place at the Victory Lounge at Fratton Park on Friday 22nd March 2019 from 12.00 onwards.  All the profits will be given equally to The Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity, The Royal Airforce Benevolent Fund and the Soldiers Charity. 
There will be a lovely curry buffet lunch, with vegetarian options, prepared by Southsea’s premier Indian restaurant The Akash, an auction with lots such as a chance to ‘flight’ in spitfire simulation, a pair of tickets to a reception in the Army & Navy Club followed by Beat Retreat on Horseguards on 6th June (75th Anniversary of D-Day) and much more. There will also be a raffle, music and chance to meet and speak to veterans who have been helped by the charities who will benefit as well as other stall holders at the event which have military connections.
You might ask, why a Curry? Well curry is a long-standing tradition in the British Army, originating from the Army's long service in India and elsewhere in the Asian sub-continent, particularly during the days of the British Raj under Queen Victoria.
The event has currently three main sponsors, Biscoes Solicitors, TJ Transport and JWR Accountants. The group behind the idea includes Biscoes, Portsmouth City Council, ExpressFM, Digital Dinos, The Akash and David Macaskill , Pompey In the Community and The News which have all donated time for free to get this event up and running.
In the year of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day this will be a chance to make a difference to those who have served and show just how much they are respected by the people of Pompey!
Tickets for event can be purchased from the web site www.thebigcurrylunch.co.uk or from Biscoes Solicitors by calling 02392660261 and are £50 per person. If you would like to donate a raffle or auction prize or participate as a sponsor of the event and sponsor packages include tickets as well as advertising and networking opportunities please contact Alison Lee at Biscoes on 02392660261 or alee@biscoes-law.co.uk
