In addition to commemorating the entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and dedication of those early curry pioneers – who laid the foundations and made the industry what it is today – often in the face of adversity, British Curry Day is about helping those less well off.
The generosity of British curry restaurateurs and their customers is well documented. Each year fundraising dinners and special events raise millions of pounds for charity. Small, local causes – which lack the resources of national campaigns – are often the beneficiaries.
These efforts are one of the many examples which demonstrate how the British Asian diaspora has become an integral party of modern society.
Up and down the country, numerous curry restaurants are hosting fun charity-raisers on British Curry Day.
Be part of it and Back the Bhaji!
