Taste the spices of India for charity

Following the success of three previous fundraising dinners at the Pashmina Indian restaurant in Lagos, Luz-based charity Madrugada will be holding another one on Friday, February 25 starting at 7.30pm.

A special three-course meal complete with wine or beer will be served for €20 per person. A generous proportion of this charge is donated by restaurant owner Raman Bhasin.

The fundraising group, headed by Paul Wigglesworth, is setting up a regular programme of events for 2011 to raise funds for the charity’s objective of helping people with life limiting illness in the Algarve.

“Our aim is to build a strong social networking aspect through these Madrugada events where people can enjoy something a little different in good surroundings, make new friends and help support a good cause,” said Paul Wigglesworth.

Madrugada’s second charity shop is to be inaugurated this month at Rua Direita in Portimão, however, a date is yet to be announced.
