Saving the tiger is top of the menu
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.”

The Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest straddling Bangladesh and India, is home to the last stronghold of tigers in the world. While other tiger populations dwindle to as few as 30 tigers - the Sundarbans has miraculously survived.
