A MAYOR’S charity fund got a spicy little boost thanks to the generosity of one Indian takeaway.
The Gandhi Indian Takeaway in Anjou Crescent, Fareham has made it an annual event to give a full day’s takings to the mayor of Fareham’s charity fund.
The then mayor Councillor Trevor Cartwright and mayoress Ruth Cartwright popped along to sample the popular spot’s tasty goods and receive a cheque for £602.
Gandhi’s owner Abu Suyeb said this was the fourth year he had done this for the mayor’s fund – and this year the takeaway is also celebrating its 21st birthday.
Mr Suyeb said: ‘I would like to thank my customers who have supported our charity fundraising event.
‘Many of them bought their weekly curry evening forward to support a great cause, it was an excellent community event.
‘I’m over the moon with how well it went. I like to do something good for the community, and I look forward to doing it again next year.’
Cllr Cartwright was rasing money for three causes, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Toe in the Water and Warsash Wasps Sports and Football Club.
During his year in office Cllr Cartwright raised more than £40,000.
He was replaced last week by new mayor, councillor Dennis Steadman who will be raising money for Wessex Heartbeat.
