On Tuesday 16th January 2018, Town or Country worked with Tillison Consulting, a Waterlooville-based digital marketing agency to host a curry business event and fantastically raised £150 for the Murray Parish Trust.
The curry business event took place at Uptons of Bassett in Southampton and delicious Sri Lankan food was served and priced at £20 per head with a £5 donation to charity.
Charlotte Glover, Sales and Marketing Director at Town or Country said of the event: ‘We have worked with Tillison Consulting on a number of curry night events helping to raise money for various charities. It was an honour to host our own event and raise money for such a great charity, which is close to our hearts.’
The charity supported was the Murray Parish Trust, set up in 2014 by Sarah Parish and James Murray, in memory of their daughter Ella-Jayne, who passed away in 2009 due to a congenital heart defect. The money the charity raises goes to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at Southampton Hospital to help fund life-saving equipment, a full-time counsellor for parents of children admitted to the unit, bed spaces and a specialist helicopter gurney.
Shaun Farrell, the business development manager at Tillison Consulting who attended the event said: ‘It was a fantastic night of chat with great local businesses all getting together to raise money for an excellent cause. The staff at Uptons of Bassett were very attentive and professional – we all loved the unique twist of Sri Lankan curries!’
Tillison Consulting has raised in excess of £5000 for charities through their curry business events and they are looking forward to raising money again for local charities.
