Charity supporters raised over £500 this week at a fundraising curry night in support of Abbots Langley charity DEMAND Design and Manufacture for Disability.
The funds will help the charity to continue offering its custom disability equipment design service, which helps people maintain independence and enjoy life enriching activities when there are no products on the market to suit their needs.
Guests at the curry night, held at West Herts College, were treated to a selection of spiced British favourites courtesy of the chefs-in-training in the Food Academy Programme. The courses were accompanied by paired beers and the night was rounded off with a raffle.
Denise Gillies. Fundraising Manager at DEMAND said: “We were again thrilled to help the aspiring chefs in Watford gain the real-world experience they’ll need in their future careers.
“The food was delightful as always and our special thanks go to our supporters who came out on a dreary Autumn night to enjoy a spicy supper.
“We were joined by two special guests, Nikki Olins of H&Y Furniture and Ann Phillpot of Forever Living who are two of the very first members of our Corporate Partner Network.”
Proceeds from ticket sales and the raffle on the night will support DEMAND’s work helping disabled people to overcome barriers to independence and inclusion with ingenious inventions.
