Curry night raises £2k for industry charity

The eighth annual Curry Night, organised by the Yorkshire Region of The Furniture Makers’ Company, has raised £2000 for the industry charity. 

More than 80 people, representing numerous companies in the UK furniture and furnishing industry, attended the well-established event, which was held at the Aagrah Midpoint, Bradford on Thursday 29th February this year. 

Attendees savoured an array of dishes, including traditional favourites alongside a selection of sides and desserts. Between the courses, close-up and cabaret magician Carl Royle entertained guests. 

Throughout the evening, attendees participated in various fundraising activities, including a raffle, all contributing to the overall success of the event. All the proceeds will go towards supporting The Furniture Makers’ Company’s education and welfare charitable activities. 

Jessica Alexander, chairman of the Yorkshire Region, says: “A huge thank you to everyone who supported the Yorkshire Region Curry Night - our guests, sponsors and donors. Thanks to all of you we’ve raised a fantastic amount for the industry charity, and a good time was had by all.” 

The Furniture Makers’ Company would like to thank the following companies and individuals for sponsoring a prize – Aagrah, Camira, Jay Be, John Cotton, the National Bed Federation, Raskelf, Shire Beds and Tony Attard. Thanks also to Litmus Furniture for sponsoring the magical entertainment. 

The Furniture Makers’ Company has eight regional committees – East of England, Central, North East, North West, Yorkshire, South West, South East and Southern. Each aims to organise a number of fundraising and networking events in their area for members and non-members of The Furniture Makers Company.
