Andrew Mitchell MP and local Indian Restaurant owner Mr Joynal Abdin are joining forces to help raise money for Sutton charity, St Giles Hospice.

The charity curry night, to be held next Thursday on 21 October 2010, has seen a huge uptake on tickets but places still remain.

Sutton’s MP, Andrew Mitchell, will be the guest of honour at the event which will is taking place at the Shaban Indian Restaurant on Boldmere Road.

Anyone wishing to attend should book their place by popping in to the Shaban Indian Restaurant at 46 Boldmere Road B73 5TD, or call the restaurant on 0121 354 7722.

All are welcome and at the event which starts at 7pm and costs £20 per person. Proceeds from the curry night go to the St Giles Hospice Buy-A-Bed appeal which is kitting out its newest facility, the Compass Centre, with beds and equipment.

Andrew Mitchell MP said: “St Giles is one of the best-known and most respected charities in our region, providing invaluable care for patients from Sutton Coldfield and the surrounding area.

“I recently visited the Compassus Centre and was hugely impressed with the new facility. The centre is revolutionising the way in which in-patient care is provided to local people with cancer and other serious illnesses.

“By lending its support to the ‘Buy a Bed for St Giles’ campaign, the local community can make a real difference to the lives of thousands of patients and their families. I hope that the Shaban’s Charity Curry Night will help raise the money needed for the hospice to continue to meet the high demand for its crucial services.”
