Christmas curries bring cheer for George House

An Indian takeaway gave out Christmas curries to residents and staff at George House in Plymouth over the festive period.

As preparations are being made for Christmas across the world, Abdul Azad, the owner of Roopnogor Takeaway in Milehouse was been preparing a Christmas curry for those who are less fortunate.

Mr Azad approached Councillor Chaz Singh about his plans to prepare a lunch just before Christmas and Cllr Singh arranged for Abul to serve a lunch at George House. Mr Azad said: "In the name of humanity it is my duty to help those in less fortunate circumstances and to encourage others to do so as well. I'd like to thank Councillor Chaz Singh for making this happen and educating me in how we can all live, work and prosper in a multi-faith Plymouth."

Nicola Greenfield, Area Manager for Devon, Somerset and Avon at George House said: "It was a pleasure to welcome the wonderful food prepared by Roopnogar Indian Restaurant into George House Homeless Hostel. The Christmas Curries were a real treat for people who find themselves without a home at this time of year. People living at the hostel enjoyed the delicious food so much that they prepared a card especially to say thank you. We hope we have an opportunity to welcome Roopnogar again in the future."

Cllr Singh said: "Its great to see communities come together at this time of year and able to show how we can care and share for each other."
