Another fabulous fundraising curry night was delivered on Friday evening by Saju and Mary Mathew (assisted by Melvin and Mahima): an expert cooking demonstration, great meal and excellent fellowship. More than 80 people enjoyed the relaxed evening, which began with a masterclass from chef Saju, who effortlessly prepared and cooked lentil and spinach soup, chapatis, and lamb kathi rolls. This was followed by a full three-course meal, greatly enjoyed by all attendees, who ranged from church friends to members of the wider community.

All profits from the evening will be sent to the Palani Mission, Kerala, in southern India, to fund the training of two student midwives who have already completed their first year and are ready to start their second year to become qualified midwives. The qualification will transform the lives of the two students as well as serve the community. The rate of infantile survival will be much enhanced as mothers in very remote places are assisted to deliver their babies and receive instruction on baby aftercare and aspects of good hygiene practice.
We at Fleet United Reformed Church are delighted to be able to contribute to this practical demonstration of God’s love. Working in partnership with Revd John Abraham, the Palani Mission minister, we can ensure that the money will be spent where it is most needed for the development of the two students.
A big thank you to all who attended the evening for their generosity.
