The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

RESTAU­RANTS in Peter­bor­ough are help­ing to save the Ben­gal tiger by do­nat­ing some of their tak­ings to the fight to pre­serve the an­i­mal.

Staff at Ali’s Balti House, in Bourges Boule­vard, and The Banyan Tree, in Church Street, Wer­ring­ton, have signed up to Save the Ben­gal Tiger Week, which has been cham­pi­oned by the Bri­tish Curry Club.

The two are among 500 mem­bers of the club na­tion­ally that will be pro­vid­ing a spe­cial three course menu to their cus­tomers for £20, with a por­tion of the pro­ceeds go­ing to Save the Ben­gal Tiger.

Save the Ben­gal Tiger week gets un­der way on Mon­day.

Mike Ahmed of the Bri­tish Curry Club said: “We are call­ing on the na­tion’s army of curry lovers to sup­port Save the Tiger Week by vis­it­ing restau­rants in their lo­cal ar­eas and be­yond.

“What’s more the spe­cial tiger menu on of­fer in the restau­rants has been es­pe­cially tai­lored to cater for the UK taste buds and fea­tures the top 10 curry dishes as voted by the Bri­tish public.”
