Raj cooks up Tigers event

Local Indian restaurant the Raj are getting behind Worksop Town Football Club with a fundraising evening.

The venue will host an event on Friday 18th July, with dinner, drinking and dancing, and all proceeds will go to the Tigers.

If successful, the restaurant will hold a second fundraiser a month later.

Iain Newton from Worksop Town Juniors, who has helped to set up the link between the Raj and the football club, said: “Owner Abby Hussain has offered his venue for a fundraising event to support the Tiger’s current situation.”

“This is a really generous offer by Abby and over the two events, the potential money raised could equate to 10 season tickets.”

It is hoped that they can sell 100 tickets, at £10 each, with a buffet meal and DJ providing entertainment.

Hussain is already heavily involved in local sport, with sponsorship deals for a Worksop Town Junior football side and Worksop Rugby Club.
