Severn Hospice Fundraising Department, Bicton Heath, Shrewsbury SY3 8HS.
Dear Mr Hussan,
Hearing about your donation of £861.00 is absolutely fantastic! The fact that you have taken the time and effort to raise money to help pour patients is an inspiration to me and has given me a real lift because I know the difference it will make to them.
You have shown a great commitment to us and because of that I feel a personal responsibility to assure you that we will put your gift to the best possible use to support those who need us within our local community.
Thanks to you, the next family I meet who have had their lives changed forever because of an incurable illness will have all the support and specialist care they need to help them through the challenges they face. What a wonderful gift you have given!
If you have any further questions, may I ask you to contact our fundraising team on 01952 221351 firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to the address above, as I am directly involved in patient care every day.
Many congratulations on what you have achieved. My sincere heartfelt thanks once again to you for thinking of Severn Hospice.
With my best wishes and gratitude.

Things are spicing up throughout Shropshire in preparation for a national virtual charity night celebrating Indian cuisine.
By Rory Smith, Shropshire Star. Published: May 21, 2020
From today through to Sunday, May 31, hundreds of restaurants and takeaways around the country will help to support the British Asian Trust’s appeal to raise funds to help feed families in South Asia who have lost their daily paid work due to the Covid-19 crisis and as a result have lost their ability to buy food.
The restaurants are asking customers to donate £1 when ordering a takeaway meal in support of the appeal, and hopes to make a difference to hundreds of families in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka giving them the chance to buy food and essential items for another month.
Founded by The Prince of Wales, The British Asian Trust has helped more than five million people in South Asia in the fields of education, livelihoods, anti-trafficking and mental health.
Harun Miah runs the Lea Cross Tandoori at Pontesbury with his brother and was recognised for his culinary skills at this year’s Curry Life Awards where he achieved regional Curry Life Best Chef Award 2019.
The national awards seek to find talented Indian chefs from around the country in the most challenging judging process which also leads to opportunities to further develop exciting new dishes alongside top chefs in workshops in the Indian subcontinent.
Working within Indian kitchens for over 30 years Harun said that he thoroughly enjoys cooking and creating new dishes and will often take on a challenge from customers to produce a unique dish using a particular ingredient. Before joining the family business Harun worked in the kitchens in Hertfordshire cooking signature dishes for many celebrity guests.
“We would like to thank everybody that has voted for us and helped us to achieve this award, this award is such an accolade within Indian restaurants and has only been achieved with so many of our customers taking the time and trouble to vote for us” said Hassan, Harun’s brother who works front of house.
The awards were held on Sunday (3) at London’s Hilton Park Lane and attended by prominent public figures including Lord Karan Bilimoria, founder of Cobra beer.
