Together we can help by taking the pound pledge

All you need to do is email your pledge (name, town, email address) to donate just £1 (or more) to info@thecurrytree.com and it will be called upon during National Curry Week in November each year. In return all donors will have access to "Recipes For Success 2009" containg recipes from top chefs worldwide completely free.

If all 23 million of us join the Tree, just think what we could do.

Funds raised will be allocated to deserving causes around poverty, disaster and malnutrition each year by the trustees which include some of the top people in the Indian restaurant sector.

(email details will not be passed on or sold to any third party and only be used to call on the pledge or to provide information about National Curry Week, The Curry Tree or related matters.)
