The team at Tillison Consultants hosted a Curry Business event at Chilworth Manor, raising more than £100 for the cause.

Guests were invited to the Manor, where they tucked into a delicious Indian buffet and made donations to No Limits.

The venue aided the firm in its fundraising efforts by holding a raffle, with prizes including a bottle of wine and bubbly, gift vouchers and an afternoon tea for two.

Mark Tillison, managing director of Tillison Consulting, said: ‘Curry Business is a social evening with no agenda other than to enjoy the company of other businesses while supporting worthy causes.

‘There are no subscriptions, no fees, no commitments. If you gain business from it, consider it a bonus.’

The organisations that have benefitted from Tillison’s donations include Wessex-based Breast Cancer Haven, Fareham-based Cafe iMBiZO and Smile Support & Care in Eastleigh.

Catherine Garton, sexual health and wellbeing worker for No Limits, said: ‘It costs at least £250,000 a year to keep the centre running,

‘Any amount of money we raise goes towards keeping it open for young people to come in and get the support that they need.’
