14 February 2023

Residents of Peterborough are invited to join in the fun for a charity curry night to raise money for causes being supported by the Mayor.

The charity event will be held on Tuesday 28 February from 6pm and will be hosted by Councillor Ansar Ali, at the prestigious Gurkha Durbar restaurant on Broadway. For just £25 per ticket you’ll receive a three-course meal and an evening of unique entertainment.

The evening is expected to be a relaxed social occasion with all proceeds going to various charities across the city, which will be decided by the Mayor.

Councillor Alan Dowson, Mayor of Peterborough, said: “Food is much more than just eating, it’s a great way to allow people from all different communities and backgrounds to sit together and share stories that allow them to become friends.

“We hope that as many people as possible are able to join us for this charity curry night, which will allow us to raise money for much-needed causes.”

Councillor Ansar Ali said: “I’ve hosted a charity curry night in Peterborough for around eight years now, with exception of years during Covid lockdowns, and every single one has been a delight. This year, we are excited to be hosting the event with the Mayor of which we hope will make this year even bigger and better than ever, raising even more money for charity.

“It’s also a rare opportunity to bring people together and hear their stories in a relaxed, stress-free environment.”
