A local restaurant owner is set to mark National Rice Week by fundraising for The Princess Alexandra Hospitals Charity.
Karim Ullah, the owner of Brohmon, an Indian cuisine restaurant, located in Stansted Mountfichet, is inviting people to try an array of delicious rice-based dishes throughout the event.
Funds raised during the week from Monday 14 – Sunday 20 September will be donated to The Princess Alexandra Hospitals Charity gastroenterology fund, to help purchase special equipment and enhance patient care and experience.
Karim said: “The hospital have provided high quality care and support for me and my family over the years, I spent many weeks at PAHT after recovering from major surgery. The staff were amazing and helped me to recover and return to a normal and healthy life.
“We hope that the fundraiser shows a token of our appreciation for the care that I have received. It is also an opportunity to thank the staff for their hard work in the fight against coronavirus (COVID-19).
“Join us during National Rice Week to enjoy a socially distanced evening with a hearty Indian meal or collect a take away to have in the comfort of your own home, all whilst contributing to a worthy cause. You can call us on 01279 815 688 to book a table or order a takeaway for collection or for delivery to local and surrounding areas.”
Ogechi Emeadi, director of people, organisational development and communications at PAHT said: “A huge thank you to the Brohmon restaurant for hosting a fantastic fundraising activity to support our charity.
“The week is a great opportunity to try much loved culturally inspired recipes, whilst raising funds that will help make a real difference for our patients and our people who strive to deliver the best care possible.”
