Burgess Hill District Lions were pleased to work again with the Shapla from London Road, Burgess Hill, to raise money for the Friends of Woodlands Meed Special Needs School.  Thirty eight people which included the Head Teacher Adam Rowland and Lion President John Carter. We all enjoyed an excellent meal and the service was very good, as well as eating everybody was buying tickets for the super raffle and the proceeds from the tickets, raffle and generous donations amounted to 400 and then Mr Hussain presented us with a cheque on behalf of the Shapla for 50. So everyone went away happy, knowing that together we had raised 450 for the Friends of Woodlands Meed School.

The Mayor of Burgess Hill Jacqui Landriani said she "gave a huge thank you to Burgess Hill District Lions who organised a wonderful fundraising curry night at the Shapla Restaurant in Burgess Hill for my chosen charity Signposts Mid Sussex Ltd. Not only did we receive wonderful service and excellent food by the staff at the Shapla but thanks to the generosity of all those attending including Chairman of Mid Sussex District Council Peter Reed, Haywards Heath Mayor Sujan Wickremaratchi and Lions President Sarah Dorrington.  Mr Hussain, owner of the Shapla, who also made a very generous donation which helped the final figure raised to be 555 stated that a crowd of 50 people is the most he has ever had seated in all the years he has owned the restaurant. Thank you also to everyone who attended for their support and for all the contributions to the raffle and for helping to create a wonderful event."
