British Curry Club Looks To Source Sponsors For Sundarban Tiger Project
The UK’s leading restaurant group dedicated exclusively to curry is searching for sponsors to help raise funds for the Sundarban Tiger Project; a project which aims to sustain the largest remaining tiger population in the world.
The Britich Curry Club is currently seeking sponsors to support the Sundarban Tiger Project (STP); a project that aims to raise both funds and awareness to support one of the largest populations of wild tigers left in the wild.
The idea for the project was developed in 2001 during a field survey of the Bangladesh Sundarbans, when researchers realised that there was an urgent need for measures that would ensure the protection of the area and its tigers.
The project was initially research focused; there was very little information on the tigers of the Bangladeshi Sundarbans and it was difficult to gain both the political and funding support for full scale tiger conservation without such information. The project is now evolving rapidly to encompass building and conservation awareness activities.
The British Curry Club has more than 1,200 restaurants located across the UK, many of which will be taking part in a new fundraising event for the project. This includes organising 4 days ‘Save the Tigers’ fundraising events, which is open to the public, on the 19th, 20th and 21st & 22nd March. 400 restaurants have signed up to the project so far and the fundraising events will cost customers £20 for a three-course meal. 25% of the money raised will go directly to the STP and will help pay for things such as:
- Extra security guards in the area
- Education for young people (conservation awareness)
- Training men and women in different types of trade
Mike Ahmed, C.E.O. of the British Curry Club, had the following to say about the project:
We’re really excited to be working with the Sundarbans Tiger Project, as it’s something that is quite close to our hearts. The restaurants within the British Curry Club have been more than happy to help with the project and we’re really excited about the fundraising event in March.
“We’re looking for sponsors to help raise funds for the project. As well as supporting a good cause, we will be getting both national and local press involved in the project, so it’s a chance to get your name out there in support of a fantastic venture."
