Showing support for British soldiers


Manchester’s Indian Ocean restau- rant claims it is ‘second to naan’ in its support of Britain’s soldiers. In April it hosted a special charity night in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, which has been giving lifetime support to serving and retired soldiers and their families for more than 66 years.


The event was attended by more than 100 Indian Ocean customers and ABF committee members, including the Chairman of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity for the Greater Manchester area, Colonel David Kirkwood. Guests really dug deep and gave generously on the night as over £1000 was raised for the soldiers through ticket sales, a raffle and the auction of a rail trip for two to Edinburgh. Singer Jennie Bonita entertained guests late into the night after a three course Punjabi and Kashmiri meal had been enjoyed.

raising money for our brave soldiers. So much is asked of these heroic men and women - we only need to look in a newspaper to see the effects that the current conflicts are having – and this is our way of giving something back to them.” Indian Ocean also celebrated National Vegetarian Week 2010 (NVW), with a special vegetarian menu that was offered to customers from 24th to 30th May. Nahim Aslam is committed to producing authentic Indian dishes,


particularly from the Kashmiri and Punjabi regions, and feels strongly about offering genuine and extensive vegetarian options to his customers. He says, “We’ ve always had a great selection of vegetarian dishes but we wanted to create a full menu for this year’s National Vegetarian Week to show people we mean business when it comes to vegetarian food.”
