For the fifth year running the UK’s leading kidney cancer charity is encouraging Indian food fans across the UK to invite friends, family and colleagues to attend a curry party or to host their very own curry party at home, raising awareness and much needed funds for the charity. This year the event runs from Saturday 13th until Sunday 21st October.
Creator and Director of Geeta’s, Geeta Samtani has kindly offered to create two delicious recipes for all party hosts to follow.
Ever since Geeta’s Premium Mango Chutney first hit UK supermarket shelves in the early 90s, Geeta’s has gone on to become a household name, synonymous with quality and authenticity. Geeta grew up in India and has lived in Britain since 1979, bringing with her the recipes which have been passed down through the generations of her family.
Geeta Samtani says of her partnership with the Fund: “I used to make my Mango Chutney for friends and family and also sell them for charity. I learnt the recipe, which has been handed down in my family, from my mother and my mother-in-law. One thing led to another and it became a viable business venture. It gives me great pleasure to be involved in helping to raise funds for the James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer and I am thrilled to have been asked.”
Broadcaster James Whale, Founder and Chairman of the James Whale Fund and a kidney cancer survivor, said: “We’re confident that this will be our biggest fundraiser yet. We’ve had four successful years to date but the popularity of the event is growing and this year we hope to see parties held over the country. All these events really will make the week ‘Britain’s Biggest Curry Party’ and raise an invaluable amount of money for the charity and its causes. It’s very generous of Geeta’s to get involved with the event and we’re delighted to be working with them.”
