A Sleaford restaurant is holding a three-day charity event to raise money to help victims of the Nepal earthquake.

Nadim Aziz, owner of the India Garden in Sleaford Market Place, said: “People have seen the disaster and especially the effect on the children. As soon as we saw the images, my family and I immediately decided we must do something and so we are organising a set meal for £25 each available during the evenings of May 18-20. £15 of that fee will be donated to the Penny Appeal to help in Nepal.”

He has already begun taking bookings and he hopes to raise hundreds of pounds.

The meal will entail mixed starters and poppadoms, followed by any main dish from the menu plus rice or naan and Indian style roast potato.

He said his family are so keen to support this charity that the bill per head will not even cover their costs.

There may be representatives from the Penny Appeal at the event along with posters and footage from the earthquake zone.

The event will also be sponsored by Paul Sanghera, of Kingfisher Beer, and by Cobra beers.

Mr Aziz wished to thank his customers for their support in previous charity events.

He said: “Without their help I would have been able to raise as much money for good causes as I have. I also thank the Sleaford Standard for supporting my events.”
