National Curry Week 2014 – 13th – 19th October 2014
Date: Saturday, September 13, 2014
National Curry Week was started in 1998 to promote the cuisine and to raise funds for charities concentrating on hunger, malnourishment and poverty. During the week, curry lovers can get out and visit their local curry houses, some of which will be staging special events and fun challenges.
Now in its 17th year, National Curry Week 2014 again invites not only curry restaurants, caterers, pubs, canteens etc, all over Britain but also the curry loving public who wish to dine at home with a takeaway or a prepared meal. We invite both the dine in and dine out sectors to celebrate the cuisine and culture with special dinners, record-breaking attempts, raffles, auctions and, where possible, to contribute to the alleviation of poverty and suffering in South Asia and worldwide particularly Water Projects with 1.4 million children dying from water-related diseases every year.

Donations were also made to other charities such as ABF The Soldiers Charity by The Maypole Inn, Taunton, the Sue Ryder Charity from Chak 89 in Mitcham, Katharine House Hospice from Bengal Spice in Deddington and Sightsavers Charity from Tamarind Northampton. .
