CURRY lovers showed their generous nature at a restuarant’s fundraising evening. 

More than 100 diners joined the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Cllr Lee Mason, at the event at The Akash, in Albert Road, Southsea.

They raised £1,305 for Wessex Cancer Trust’s Cosham cancer support centre, which provides help to local people living with cancer.

The evening featured music from saxophonist Ian Thomas and dancers from Unity Bollywood. Raffle and auction prizes included dinner with Portsmouth FC player, Christian Burgess, the opportunity to be a Pompey mascot in September, and Indian cooking lessons.

Faz Ahmed, who owns The Akash, said: ‘I’m absolutely delighted to support the centre. Our fundraising evening had a huge community support. It means a lot personally because a close family friend who has cancer has had great help from the centre.
