In pictures: Bollywood inspired night raises cash for charity

A pinch of Eastern spice was introduced to Norden Farm Centre for the Arts on Saturday as the Rotary Club of Maidenhead threw its annual Bollywood fundraiser.

Guests attended in traditional Indian dress and were entertained by a mixture of classical and contemporary dance.

Young dancers kicked off the evening's entertainment at the venue in Altwood Road with a performance of Bollywood routines.

It was followed by a classical Indian dance and the show was closed with an energetic Bhangra routine.

More than 120 guests were welcomed in style with a champagne reception.

That was followed by a variety of authentic street food served from a Bombay beach style Bhel Puri stand and a banquet.

Rotarian Tony Thakor said: "A lot of planning and hard work was put in to make the evening a big success.

"We enjoyed working together towards a very worthy cause and many guests have indicated that they would like to attend another similar evening.

"We look forward to organising next year`s event."

All money raised by the event will be donated to local and international Rotary charities.

In the spirit of the evening, some of the funds will be donated to the Arti Home in Kadapa, South India.

The charity takes in young, sometimes newborn, girls abandoned by their families.

Nearly £900 was raised on the night. A final figure will be announced shortly.
