One of Yorkshire's most famous Asian curry chefs has teamed-up with one of the county's most high profile charities to help provide food for the homeless and vulnerable.
Abdul Ghafoor of Abdul's Asian Cuisine takeway diners in Wakefield, Ponterfract and Sheffield, has adopted the Cathedral Archer Project in Sheffield as his charity for 2015.
Abduls' newest branch, opened last year, is in Ecclesall Road, Sheffield, and it was that connection that led him to begin working with the Cathedral Archer Project. Supporting homeless and vulnerable in Sheffield for 25 years, CAP helps dozens of people each day.
Now, fifty will be able to enjoy a free curry meal through the generosity and support of Abduls. He has donated fifty curry bags, each with a voucher for a free curry meal, to CAP.
"We will distribute these to people we work with including roughsleepers and the vulnerable, so they can go along to Abduls in Sheffield, fill their bags and enjoy a hot, freshmade curry meal," said CAP's Ruby Baker. "Abduls is the first new business in 2015 to become a supporter of CAP and we hope he will followed by many more as we strive to support people who are suffering hardship and difficulties in their life."
Abduls in Ecclesall Road is open from 5pm until 11pm each day for takeway and 'dine in' Asian curries and snacks. "I'm delighted to be able to provide food which such a highly respected charity is able to use to benefit people in need," said chef/proprietor Abdul.
