Rotary's Indian evening money for charity

The dancefloor was rocking after a delicious dinner with an authentic taste of India raised money for charity.

The Rotary Club of Maidenhead, in association with key supporter and Cookham parish councillor Mandy Brar, held its annual fundraising Indian evening at the Magnet Leisure Centre in Maidenhead on Saturday.

More than 230 people packed into the venue for an evening of authentic Indian cuisine, traditional Indian dancing and entertainment, a bar and raffle.

As well as local and national charities supported by Rotary, Elizabeth House day centre in Cookham and the Alexander Devine Children's Cancer Trust will both benefit from the fundraiser.

Rotarian Ian Thomas, one of the event’s organisers, said: "It was a very good turnout, there must have been 230-240 people.

"It is a successful formula and long may it continue. Thanks to everyone who supported us."

Entertainment included Bollywood and Bhangra dancing, classical Indian dancing and a singer. The exact amount raised is still being counted but it is hoped that that the event raised several thousands of pounds.
