AN INDIAN restaurant in Hampshire raised hundreds of pounds for a variety of good causes by donating proceeds from the day.

Visitors to the Gandhi Indian Takeaway and restaurant in Anjoy Crescent, Fareham, helped to raise £900, which was split between the Mayor’s Appeal and a former Premiership footballer’s charity.

Owner Abu-Sayeb Tanzam handed over a cheque of £600 to the group of charities supported by this year’s Fareham mayor, Cllr Susan Bayford – the Rainbow Centre, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and disabled equestrian charity RDA Tradissar.

He also gave former Portsmouth player Linvoy Primus a cheque for £300 for Christian charity Faith in Football.

Abu-Sayeb said: “It was a wonderful night. We had a busy night; people donated some extra money for the night helping to raise another two or three hundred pounds. It’s becoming one of the events on the Fareham social calendar.”
