Gandhi Indian Takeaway in Anjou Crescent was set to host its 13th annual charity night on April 20, in support of Cancer Research UK and the mayor’s chosen causes.

Last year’s event saw £1,250 raised for Cancer Research UK and charities chosen by Susan Bayford, previous mayor of Fareham – Abby's Heroes, Acts of Kindness Solent and Royal Naval Benevolent Trust.

However, following government guidance, the establishment’s owner Abu-Suyeb Tanzam has made the decision to temporarily close.

He said: ‘We are very disappointed but we must respect the guidelines put in place by the government and Public Health.

‘Therefore, Gandhi Indian Takeaway Fareham will be closed temporarily for the first time in three decades of successful business.

‘My staff are facing pressure from their families to stay at home and the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers always come first. I’m sure we will come back even better after this is all over.’

While the business is closed, customers and supporters can find out what is going on through updates on Gandhi Indian Takeaway Fareham’s Facebook page and at gandhitakeawayfareham.co.uk.
