A RESTAURANT in Henley is hoping to raise £6,000 for a children’s centre.

Spice Merchant on Thameside will fund-raise for the Chiltern Centre for disabled children off Greys Road.

They will raise money for the charity by donating 50p from every dessert they sell and continuing to top up the money raised with additional donations.

Fund-raising started this month with the Indian restaurant displaying a collection box in their entrance and the option to add 50p to their bill.

The charity and restaurant will also jointly hold a fund-raising dinner on November 19.



Tickets for the event at the restaurant are £35 and include a two course meal followed by Bollywood dancers, music and a DJ.

Hasan Chowdhury, Operations Manager at Henley Spice Merchant said: “As a successful business being able to give back to our community by supporting a local charity is really important to us.

“We were really inspired by the work of the Chiltern Centre for disabled children and young adults and wanted to help where we could.

“Our aim is to raise at least £6,000 each year which we hope will make a real difference.”
