Curry and quiz night for military charity is the hottest ticket in Glasgow

The inaugural curry and quiz night – in aid of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity – at Glasgow’s famed Mr Singh’s India clearly went down a treat with more than £900 raised on the night.

Among those at the fundraiser for the UK’s oldest tri-service charity was SSAFA beneficiary Gary Jamieson, late of the Scots Guards and an entrant in the forthcoming Edinburgh Kiltwalk. While this might be a literal walk in the park for many, it is a little more challenging for Gary, who is a triple amputee after injuries received in a 2010 IED attack in Afghanistan.

Organiser of the quiz and curry night, SSAFA’s Challenge and Community Events Officer Scott Cunningham, said:

It was an amazing evening, full of people generous with their time and their money, not least of whom were Mr Singh himself and quizmaster Ricki Neil.

Big thanks, too, must go to those businesses who donated prizes to the draw, which included Tunnock’s, Slaters Menswear, Knockhill Racing Circuit, and the Fairmont Hotel St Andrews. You and all the others helped make the evening the success it was, helping SSAFA support veterans, serving personnel, and their families when they need it, so roll on the next curry and quiz night at Mr Singh’s India.

The next curry and quiz night at Mr Singh’s India in aid of SSAFA is on October 27 at 7.30pm.

Mr Singh’s India is at 149 Elderslie Street, Glasgow, G3 7JR.

Tickets cost £27.50 per person in a team of four. Price includes entry to the quiz, a donation to SSAFA, and a four-course meal. For more information and to buy tickets, follow this link:
