A CURRY night to help survivors of the Asian tsunami has raised hundreds of pounds.
Mayor Brian Under-wood held the event at the Taj Mahal Restau-rant in Stevenage Old Town.
The £500 raised will go to the MWRAF which will use it to help 1,500 children who attend a school in the village of Sainthamaru-thu in Sri Lanka.
The school building was destroyed by the tsunami and the school has since been rehoused into a disused sports stadium.
Murad Chowdhury, who owns the Taj Mahal, said: "The event was a great success and I am glad we have been able to help these poor victims again. The money raised will really make a difference to these children's lives."
