A TANDOORI taking part in British Curry Day is set to help out Reading's community by raising funds for the homeless.

Bina Tandoori, of Prospect Street, Caversham, will be taking part in the event on December 3, which looks to celebrate and commemorate the culinary pioneers of the British curry who migrated in the 1960s and 1970s, and incorporated British food influences into the traditional-style dishes.

All the while, the tandoori will be raising funds for Launchpad, a charity that supports the homeless in Reading.

Mohammed Shiraj, general manager for Bina Tandoori, said: "I wanted to support Launchpad because the homeless people will really need some kind of support because of weather coming in this winter.

"I see one or two people out there when I go to shopping and it really hurts to see people like this in this country. I really want to support those people.

"I also think it is good to recognise our grandparent's hard work, who created this industry for us.

"So its with a pride that we commemorate those who started the industry that we new make a living out of."
