The recently relaunched Bombay Lounge restaurant at Peatmoor Village Centre and The Link magazine are offering community groups and charities the chance to raise money whilst enjoying a great curry.
Lounge owner Hanif Robani has agreed to commit all his profits on a Monday evening twice a month from his restaurant, take-aways and home deliveries to a good cause, working with The Link to help organisations make as much money as possible.
“Since we relaunched in November, the response to our adverts in The Link has been fantastic, but I want to go beyond a great eating out experience,” said Hanif. “We offer high quality fresh food and a contemporary ambience which has had a tremendous reception.
"But as the Bombay Lounge is situated in the middle of the community and I live in Oakhurst, I suggested to The Link that we work together to boost local organisations.”
Hanif believes that a charity or group can expect to receive a minimum of £250 from a Monday evening’s profits. It could be a lot more if they encourage all their friends, family and supporters to book a table at the Bombay Lounge. Call 01793 887799.
The Link is coordinating the charity night diary. “Hanif has come up with an exciting win-win opportunity,” said publisher Roger Ogle. “Small local groups and larger town wide charities can book a date. It’s a great way of promoting your group to restaurant customers. Group representatives can sell raffle tickets on the evening and you might be able to recruit volunteers as well.”
Call 01793 608840 or mail: email@example.com if you would like to register a date for your cause.
