Feeling Hot! Hot! Hot!

Whether you prefer dhansak to dhal, or usually opt for tikka over a madras, curry fans everywhere are being urged to cook up their favourite dish in support of The James Whale Fund For Kidney Cancer.
Supported by Indian food brand Geeta’s, Britain’s Biggest Curry party hopes to raise funds for this important charity, while ensuring its supporters are well fed!  
In 2009, 9,000 people in the UK were diagnosed with kidney cancer which is the equivalent of 24 people day, making it the 8th most common cancer in the UK. The 
James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer is the UK’s leading kidney cancer charity and was set up in 2006 by broadcaster James Whale who lost a kidney to cancer. Today James continues to lead a full and busy life, as thankfully do the majority of people who are diagnosed and treated early. 

James is calling on food fans to host a curry night to raise money for the charity - it could be at home, for work colleagues or for a community project. And if you need inspiration for what to cook, you’ll find two exclusive recipes from Geeta’s on the website. 

Ever since Geeta’s Premium Mango Chutney first hit UK supermarket shelves in 1990, Geeta’s has gone on to become a household name. Geeta herself grew up in India and has lived in Britain since 1979, bringing with her the recipes which have been passed down through the generations of her family. Speaking about her involvement with the event, Geeta enthused: ‘I used to make mango chutney for friends and family and sell them for charity. One thing led to another and it became a viable business venture in 1990. It now gives me great pleasure to be involved in helping to raise funds for the James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer.’

Britain’s biggest curry party runs from 13th-21st October 2012.
