Over 200 attend football legend’s charity evening


Leicester City legend Alan Birchenall was joined by more than 200 guests at a special charity meal at Feast India in Belgrave, Leicester. The night, which was in aid of the football club’s One in a Million campaign, saw diners donating money in return for an evening featur- ing an all-you-can-eat buffet and chefs handing over some of their top industry secrets. The event raised more than £1,000 for the charity, and was consid- ered to be a huge success.


Alan Birchenall said of the evening: “It was a great night and a great opportu- nity for some of the people involved in the One In A Million campaign to say thank-you to those that have supported it throughout the season.”


Leicester City Football Club mascot Filbert Fox also made an appearance on the night. A club spokesman added: “We would like to say a big thank-you to all at Feast India for their support in hosting such a great evening and rais- ing this fantastic amount of money.’’


The club’s One in a Million campaign hopes to raise £1 million, which will be shared between Age UK Leicestershire and Rutland, Leicester Children’s Hospital, Loros hospice and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.


Curry training camp serves VIP guests


Guests, including Corby mayor Gail McDade and borough council leader Tom Beattie, feasted on poppadoms, followed by a choice of vegetable curry or chicken biryani. The pupils not only cooked all of the food on offer, they also acted as front of house and waited on tables.


Tyler Robertson, 14, a pupil at Corby Business Academy, said: “I volun- teered to be in the front of house team but I’ve really enjoyed learning how to make a proper curry.”


A group of 20 boys and girls from schools around Corby in Northamptonshire recently served up a banquet of authentic Indian food at the town’s Bombay Dynasty restaurant.


The team of 11 to 14-year-olds was given expert training and advice from the restaurant’s owner Mohammed Raham as part of Bombay Dynasty’s 25th birthday celebrations.


Mr Rahman, who is also the deputy mayor of Corby, commented: “They all did a brilliant job and I think we have some potential top chefs among them. The curry boot camp has taught them new skills, helped build their confi- dence and promoted diversity in the town.”
