Action Oldham Fund has swapped cake for curry with a special campaign to help the community as they celebrate their fourth birthday.
The Fund supports good causes, particularly smaller, local groups, across the borough with grants, so they can make a real difference to local lives.
With the help of generous people and businesses they have funded more than 80 community projects in the last four years, distributing over £330,000.
Now, to celebrate their success as well as their milestone birthday, they have launched the ‘Creating Change with Curry’ campaign.
They have teamed up with restaurants The Blue Tiffin, Anise and Millon, who will donate £1 for every Chicken Tikka main meal sold from 18-24 September 2017.
Ziggy Miah, director of Anise Restaurant at Austerlands, said: “I met Clare Taylor, Fund Development Co-ordinator, at our VIP opening this summer.
“I was enthused by the stories of smaller local voluntary groups helping those with disabilities, or health conditions.
“Also the amount of work done by volunteers to bring communities together, support our young people to develop skills and be good citizens is staggering.
“I think it’s important to support local smaller charities and was keen to support this campaign.”
Action Oldham Fund grants give vital support to groups who are enhancing health and well-being or rebuilding lives affected by poverty, crime, isolation or unemployment.
Clare Taylor said: “Our friends in these restaurants have been consistently supported of locl charities.
“It’s wonderful these restaurants want to give back, and with over half the population saying they would prefer to buy from business that are local, it’s a great offer for our birthday week!”
To enjoy a Chicken Tikka main meal, with £1 donated to Action Oldham Fund, visit Anise on Huddersfield Road, Austerlands; The Blue Tiffin on Higginshaw Lane, Oldham; or Millon on Featherstall Road South, Chadderton.
