Restaurant gets Christmasy to help Nepal earthquake victims


Staff at an Indian restaurant will decorate a Christmas tree to raise money for the Nepal earthquake appeal.

Calcutta Brasserie in Stony Stratford is one of eighteen businesses that have come together to personalise their own Christmas tree, of which the public can vote for their favourite.

The winning Christmas tree will receive an extra £100 for their chosen charity and all the tree’s will then go into a public auction in intu shopping centre on December 5, which will be hosted by local radio station MKFM.

Restaurant Manager Ali Ajmol said: “We are pleased to be taking part in the ‘Oh Christmas Tree’ campaign and hope we can impress with our Christmas tree and raise money for the Nepal Earthquake Appeal.”

Back in July Calcutta raised an impressive £620 for the Nepal earthquake fund and the restaurant will be hoping to win the public vote this Christmas to donate to Nepal.
