An Indian restaurant in Whiteabbey recently helped to raise an excellent sum of money for the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.

TAAJ Restaurant held a curry tasting night to raise funds for the very worthy cause, and thanks to the generosity of the diners they were able to reach the tremendous figure of £400.

The patrons were able to sample a wide range of spicy Indian dishes, with some braving the heat to take on the Man versus Curry Challenge.

TAAJ owner Manjeev Sharma is pleased that his restaurant was able to help the Children’s Hospice.

“We are delighted to be in a position to help the Children’s Hospice and more than pleased with the response to our fundraising evening. We would like to thank everyone who came on the night, took part in the challenge and supported the raffle,” he said.

Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice Community Fundraiser Catherine O’Hara has praised the efforts of TAAJ and other businesses who support the charity.

“For every £30 that is raised for our charity we are able to provide one hour of specialist nursing care to a life limited child and their family. We could not continue the work that we do without the support and generosity of TAAJ and so many of our local businesses,” she said.
