A restaurant whose name is Indian spelled backwards has come forward as a champion for charity.
Naidni restaurant in Stony Stratford has been quietly running fundraising quiz and curry nights every month for the past five years.
During this time it has raised well over £20,000 for Willen Hospice and Rett Syndrome UK charities.
“By the end of this year we hope to make it £25,000,” said Muj Ahmed, who runs Naidni with his father.
The quiz nights are hosted by local resident John Taylor, whose family has first hand experience of both Rett Syndrome and Willen Hospice.
Said Muj: “We hold thenm on the first Tuesday of every month and we have lots of regulars come along.
“Some people enjoy it so much that they book tables at a quiz night for their company Christmas parties.
“We keep hearing about the credit crunch but it doesn’t seem to have affected our charity nights. they get more and more popular.”
The restaurant even has its own Facebook page for the quiz regulars to follow.
Donations to both charities are made every month, said Muj, and the restaurant is full of thank you letters to ‘The Tuesday Curry Club’.
Said Muj: “We’ve never really had publicity – our regulars have just spread the word.
“But we’d love other people to come and enjoy the food and the fun too.”
Quiz bookings, including Christmas party reservations, can be made by calling Naidni on MK 635002.
