Monmouth Town Mayor’s Charity Curry Night

 

The Monmouth Town Mayor’s first charity fundraising event at The Misbah on Priory Street, Monmouth was attended by more than 30 people last Sunday.  This popular restaurant provided a delicious buffet of starters and main course curries. All proceeds from the food will go to The Mayor’s chosen charities – SSAFA and Bridges Centre charities.  Those present ranged from primary school children to pensioners and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  Thanks must go to The Misbah for hosting the event and Monmouth’s own Bees for Development who kindly donated a bottle of blackberry mead as a raffle prize.  This was a great start to Felicity Cotton’s programme of charity events.
