A SOUTH Tyneside restaurant is hoping to help a children’s charity cook up a fundraising storm with a curry night.

The Asha Balti House in Ocean Road is once again hosting a night of food and fun in aid of the Kayaks – Kids And Young Adults Klub Special Needs.

The charity, based at Mortimer Community Centre, in Reading Road, South Shields, provides a place for youngsters with a range of special and complex needs to go to and take part in activities.

The group also provides supports to family members.

The event is the third to be held by the charity and it is hoped it will prove to be just as successful as the previous two.

In the past the curry nights have helped to boost the group’s coffers by £1,000.

Organiser Kim Elliott said: “The curry nights have always proved to be really popular and they really help to give our funds a boost.

“We rely on donations to enable us to deliver the activities our Kayak kids love to take part in.

“Hopefully, this event will be just as successful as our previous two.”

The curry night will be held on Monday, May 11, at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced £12 for a three-course meal.

There will also be a raffle and hamper draw on the night.
