Christmas lunch with a Bollywood twist to raise hospice funds
Christmas lunch was served Bollywood style to raise funds for St Francis Hospice.
Bollywood Spice, in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, hosted a five-course Indian Christmas lunch on Sunday, December 9, and raised more than �800.
About 30 St Francis Hospice supporters attended the event including last year’s Havering Mayor, Cllr Melvin Wallace, who is now a hospice patron, and trustees Geraldine St Louis and Dr Gurdev Singh Saini. Guests enjoyed Christmas songs by Tasmyn Mahmut.
Lynda Head, hospice community fundraiser who attended the lunch, said: “We were overwhelmed with the generosity of Mr Salam the owner of Bollywood Spice for hosting this lunch to help raise funds for St Francis Hospice.
“I’d like to thank him and all the staff for a delicious lunch and their superb hospitality.
