ChoraChori invites you to join us for The Big Curry fundraiser in December!
On December 7th 2019 we will be holding a very special international “Big Curry” event as part of our Christmas Big Give Appeal. Through the Appeal, we invite supporters to sit down for the perfect curry, wherever they are in the world, and afterwards donate a minimum of £5 online through the Big Give microsite. This will then double in value under the rules of The Big Give. Any major currency will be accepted on the site.
There will be a central lunch at The Gurkha Durbar restaurant in Grayshott, Hampshire, UK at 12.30 on the 7th. Friends around the world will be invited to join us – breakfast in America and dinner in Kathmandu and the Far East. Essentially we are inviting our supporters around the world to either get together with friends at a nearby Nepalese restaurant or, better still, cook the perfect curry for friends and family. Click on the adjacent image to see TV presenter and theatre actor Mark Curry (who else with a name like that?) show you how to cook the perfect curry with the guidance of Sudha Rai, the owner of The Gurkha Durbar.
At 1.30 p.m. on the day supporters can join us through the Appeal microsite for a live stream from The Gurkha Durbar where ChoraChori Founder, Philip Holmes, will tell you why we need these funds. And, surprise, surprise, he will introduce you to world record-breaking Himalayan mountaineer and former Gurkha/Special Forces soldier Nirmal (“Nims”) Purja MBE. At the time of writing Nims is at Base Camp of Shishapangma, the 14th and final peak of his incredible challenge, “Project Possible“. No doubt he’ll have some great experiences to share on the day!
Two of our Trustees, Phil Hunter and Rory Buckworth will be on a visit to Nepal on that date and they will host the evening function there. Hopefully, we can live stream that as well, although such connections are less predictable from Nepal….
