CURRY lovers can take part in the world's biggest spice fest to raise money for a charity.

The Royal Gurkha restaurant, Bromley Road, Downham is one of many eateries hosting the event to fundraise for the Army Benevolent Fund (ABF) which provides financial and practical support to soldiers, former soldiers and their families.

Royal Gurkha owner, Hajbindra Gautam, said: "We hope a lot of people come down and enjoy the event. There should be about 200 people there hopefully.

"I like getting involved with the community and supporting a good cause. I'm really looking forward to it and hope many people get involved."

'The World's Biggest Curry Lunch' is inviting individuals, restaurants, businesses, schools and clubs across the UK to host a curry event in exchange for a small donation to the ABF. The initiative has been supported by celebrities including actor Ewan McGregor, top television chef Gary Rhodes and TV presenter Fern Britton.

The event at The Royal Gurkha takes place on April 27. For more information, contact Mr Gautam on 07748323990 or see www.royalgurka.co.uk.
