Central England Co-operative Funeralcare has raised £771 with a Bollywood extravaganza for Newlife.
The event in Digbeth, Birmingham, included traditional Asian cuisine, a Bhangra DJ and henna art. Kiran Bhogal, Senior Funeral Director at Central England Co-operative Funeralcare, said: “We decided collectively to host a Bollywood charity night for colleagues and our surrounding communities to raise money for Newlife. The venue was dressed in an elegant Indian theme and all those who attended were encouraged to dress in some way to reflect the Bollywood theme.”
Newlife is Central England Co-operative’s staff-elected charity and colleagues and customers have raised £1.3million since 2012, helping to transform the lives of more than 600 disabled and terminally ill children in the retailer’s trading area.
