A Ramsgate restaurant will celebrate 31 years in business with a party and fundraising lunch for Oasis Domestic Abuse Service.
Run by Raushan Ara and husband Reza, the Ramsgate Tandoori first opened its doors in 1988 and has been a big supporter of many local causes.
Amongst the organisations and charities to receive help from the couple are Stone Bay School, Rohingya people escaping Myanmar’s military crackdown and more.
Raushan, who is Ramsgate’s first female Muslim mayor, is also a familiar face at litter picks and community events and a supporter of Mencap, The Foreland School, cub and beaver groups and homeless projects throughout the year.
Raushan’s support for the Thanet Winter Shelter continues this year as one of her chosen mayoral charities. This week she donated £500 to the shelter which opens its doors on November 11.
This month the restaurant is hosting a charity lunch to raise funds for Oasis, which has been delivering services to people experiencing domestic abuse in Kent for 23 years.
It began with a handful of dedicated people opening a refuge service in 1994. Back then 2 women a week were being murdered as a result of abuse in the home. Sadly that statistic remains the same today.
Today Oasis delivers services to adults and children both in refuge and in the community.
The charity lunch will also include a raffle and donations are welcome.
It takes place on Sunday, October 27 from 1pm to 3pm.
Raushan and Reza have developed their restaurant to keep up to date with various dietary changes and requirements.
Today, there is a large selection of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options on the menu, as well as fish and seafood dishes.
The Ramsgate Tandoori is known as being a meeting point in the community.
Ramsgate Tandoori is at 17 Harbour Street, Ramsgate. there is a 10% discount offer for all diners up until December 1.
