A night for mums has raised £1,000 towards a children's hospice.
The Scrummy Mummy curry night at the restaurant Zaman of Datchet in Horton Road was the first fundraiser of 2013 to be held by the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service, the charity working to raise the money for the hospice to be built near White Waltham.
Wahid Zaman hosted the event at his Datchet restaurant.
Susie Knowles, community fundraiser at Alexander Devine said, “I would like to take the chance to say a huge thank you to Wahid and all of his wonderful staff. They served delicious food and were truly fantastic hosts. It really was a great way to kick start the year and beat those winter blues."
John and Fiona Devine from Windsor set up the charity in memory of their son who passed away in early 2006 from a rare brain tumour aged eight.
The charity has already funded two nurses who support children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions in their own homes.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
