A CHARITY night that saw a new Indian menu toasted by the Mayor of Fareham went down a treat – raising more than £1,000.

The Gandhi Annual Charity Night dished up a night of spice at the Gandhi Indian takeaway in Anjou Road.

Gandhi's Indian Take Away in Anjou Crescent, Fareham, held a curry fundraising evening on Monday, April 15, where all profits went to The Mayor of Fareham's Charity and Cancer Research UK.

A whopping £1,250 was raised for Cancer Research UK and the Mayor of Fareham’s chosen charities – Abby's Heroes, Acts of Kindness Solent and Royal Naval Benevolent Trust.

Mayor Susan Bayford also got in on the act after cooking up a new curry dish for the launch event.

He said: ‘We highly appreciate everyone that enjoyed the evening, especially many of our customers who came back after a recent meal this past weekend to support a tremendous cause.
