National Curry Week 2010 WE NEED YOUR HELP This year, we are again calling on the great British curry fan to become part of the great British curry family by joining The Curry Tree (email@example.com) to help those in firstname.lastname@example.org In past National Curry Weeks, we have raised funds for a variety of charities based around hunger and malnutrition. For 2009 we have created The Curry Tree Charitable Fund over seen by some of the top people in the industry to distribute funds raised each year, to the most needy causes. In 2008 a whole group of disasters hit parts of the world including earthquake in China ; floods in Malaysia ; earthquake in Indonesia ; earthquake in Pakistan ; floods in Sri Lanka ; floods in Nepal ; volcano in Chile and floods in Bangladesh and in 2010 we have had the horror of Haiti. Through The Curry Tree we will be able to react to natural disasters as well as provide ongoing support for the hungry, poor and malnourished around the world. There are 23 million people eating out regularly each year in Britain. If we all pledge just £1 a year just think what we could achieve and it is all so very easy.
