Curry Night resounding success!
Curry Night at Saint Paul_s
An estimated 80 hungry fans of Indian food descended on Saint Paul's Church on Thursday, 30 April, for a wonderful Curry Night fund raiser supper in the Church Library. Ben Rolfe, photo: upper left corner, gave a short presentation during the supper providing background information about the gruelling " Marathon des Sables" that he and his daughter Emily (16 years) have trained for months to run. The Marathon begins in a week and requires participants to cover 250 kilometres in just 6 days.  Donations for the supper were collected to fund the purchase of a sophisticated microscope needed for research on the effects of diabetes on kidneys, and a whopping 2,320€ was raised at the Curry Night at Saint Paul's. Many thanks to all the many volunteers who helped cook the curries, prepare the Library, serve the meals and tidy up afterwards.
