June is the month in which the Cystic Fibrosis Trust hold their annual Wear Yellow Day and we have decided that as well as running our own yellow theme Smile Wall competition we also thought that we would host a local curry night to raise some more funds for the CF Trust.
The event was held at The Polash Restaurant in West Road, Shoeburyness, Essex. Over 40 people came along to help add some money to our totaliser and on the evening we are really pleased to say we raised over £600. (We will publish the exact amount after everything has been counted!)
Here are some of the photos from the event showing what a great time we all had. Even some of the Banana Crumble team wore yellow!! There were talks from inspirational CF ambassador Sophie Holmes and her father Peter, and of course from our very own Chief Banana Matt! It was particularly great to see Matt Pinnock from the Southend Round Table as just a few weeks ago they had awarded Banana Crumble £500 to put towards their fundraising for CF and presented the cheque on the evening.

We would like to say a huge thank you to The Polash for such an amazing evening and for some really tasty food. Also again to the Polash and to Mangetout for donating raffle prizes and to everyone who joined us to help make it such a great evening. On the night the biggest cheer went up when the bananas and the Banana Crumble T-shirt were won in the raffle.
