The Big Curry 2012

The Shrewsbury Big Curry 2012 is on the horizon, taking place on Saturday 21st July in the Square, between 12pm and 4pm - in support of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

Nick Chavasse, the organiser of the Shrewsbury Big Curry is seeking your help to raise funds for ABF, The Soldiers’ Charity. Last year ABF raised £7,500 and this year the target has been increased to £10,000!

ABF, The Soldiers’ Charity, helps those in the Army family who have been prepared to risk everything for us on operations in Afghanistan. Wounded, injured and sick soldiers and their families are rebuilding their lives in Shropshire and ABF is there to help them.

The Army chefs, who think they know how to make a good curry, have challenged the civilian chefs from the TASTE Kitchen to a Curry Cook-off. The TASTE kitchen is part of the HEART of ENGLAND fine foods (HEFF) which is based at the Shropshire Food Enterprise Centre in Shrewsbury.

There will be a carnival atmosphere with jazz music, wine and beer for sale and that magic ingredient of sunshine!

In return for a £5.00 donation to The Soldiers’ Charity, members of the public will be given a portion of Army and TASTE Kitchen curry and some rice. They then decide which curry is the best and place their empty plate in the appropriate bin. The bin containing the most plates at the end of the day determines the winner of the Curry cook-off.

The Shrewsbury Big Curry is sponsored by Shropshire Council, HEART of ENGLAND fine foods and NRG Direct Mail.

Please would you help to make this day a success by doing one of the following:

•Contact Nick Chavasse to check availability of space for a corporate stand for you to promote your business in The Square on the day and have your logo printed on event literature……….. £250.00

•Send a personal donation with a cheque payable to ‘ABF The Soldiers Charity’ or credit card details with the Gift Aid Declaration form ………. Any amount

You can also request  a downloadable Big Curry poster and display it in a suitable place and encourage your family and friends to visit The Square, Shrewsbury to Grab a Curry. At the same time you may enjoy a drink whilst listening to some great jazz music and watching the fabulous Indian Dhol Drummers.

Please support our soldiers as they struggle to resume a quality of life which most of us take for granted.
