Penarth school ‘quiz and curry’ funds new equipment


Ysgol Pen-y-Garth’s annual ‘Quiz and Curry Night’ saw new champions crowned - and helped the school raise £800 for new equipment. The winning team were Tindall’s Dwarves, who were joined by more than 100 other parents and teachers at a packed school hall for the event.


Penarth Town Crier ‘Big’ Dave Horgan led proceedings as quizmaster at the event, which attracted more parents than ever, and was catered for by local Bangladeshi restaurant Jaflon. Jaflon manager Dulon Shikdar says, “I’ve supported the school at previous quiz events and they were very successful. We are pleased that we could support the school again this year.”


Fires hit restaurant plans


A new restaurant in Hartlepoool was hit by a fire not long before it was due to start trading. Only 24 hours before The Curry House was due to open its doors a fire broke out in its kitchen area, and the restaurant and kitchen were badly damaged by smoke. Nobody was hurt in the blaze, however.


In another incident, this time at the Imran Balti Hut in Northampton, a curry restaurant was forced to cancel hundreds of Christmas bookings after a fire in its kitchen. Imli Balti expected to lose significant sums in revenue at what is traditionally the busiest time of the year. Owner Rajah Miah has said


that it could take up to two months to get the restaurant back up and running. He said: “We are all devas- tated. We have many loyal customers and we’re upset at having to let them down.”


Nirmal celebrates with charity night


Sheffield’s Nirmal Gupta, recently celebrated her 30th anniversary by raising more than £3,000 for charity. Nirmal, who launched her restaurant of the same name in 1981, staged the event in support of women’s cancer charities.


The restaurant was packed for the occasion as customers paid £25 each for a gourmet buffet showcasing some of the dishes that have made Nirmal a local legend. All profits, along with the proceeds of a raffle and a charity auction, will go to the Cycle Kenya team – three members of the local Taptonville Dental Practice - who will


set off in February to cycle 400km, from Mount Kenya to Lake Victoria, in support of Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action. The money from the restaurant will go a long way to helping the trio meet the fundraising target.
