Cash boost on menu after Oswestry charity night

A restaurant celebrated 38 years in business by hosting a charity dinner.


Held every year, the proceeds of the Simla Bangladeshi restaurant event in Oswestry are shared between charities, the beneficiaries this year being Hope House Hospice and the Kenyan Schools Project, both of which received £900 each.

Owner George Miah said: "My family and my partner Julie would like to thank everyone who supported us on the evening. All the charities we donate to are obviously deserving but one of the charities we helped this year, The Kenyan Schools Project, I feel especially close to, as a late friend of mine, David Lawson, raised a lot of money for the charity, so to build on the work he's already done feels very rewarding."
