‘Eat curry, save lives’ with The Big Curry Night In campaign
This year’s Big Curry Night In campaign will be raising vital funds for families in South Asia struggling to survive during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The British Asian Trust is appealing for urgent donations to help a region where hundreds of millions of people across India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have been severely affected by the virus.
With some of the country’s best restaurants on board, including a large number of Halal and Halal-friendly eateries, the initiative is encouraging the nation to enjoy its national dish between 22nd-31st May.
“The Big Curry Night In is an opportunity for the UK to come together under lockdown and enjoy the nation’s favourite dish – a delicious curry,” the campaign’s website said, while helping to save lives.
Founded by The Prince of Wales in 2007, The British Asian Trust has helped over 5-million in South Asia in the fields of education, livelihoods, anti-trafficking and mental health.
The charity is offering three donation packages ranging from £28 which can help a family of four purchase food and other essentials for a month, to £110 which can help upto 40 people receive emergency funds.
With the Trust stating that “now the need is much more urgent”, anyone wanting to donate can do so by visiting their website: www.bigcurrynightin.com.
