Rhianan Moore was twice the star at Brixham’s Big Curry night (on Thursday 24th February); first when her Hot Volcano Curry was unanimously voted best curry and then when she provided entertainment by singing and accompanying herself on the ukulele.
Ankur Biswas, head chef at the Royal Castle Hotel in Dartmouth, claimed second prize with his medium-hot Chicken Makhani. Singer Phoebe Clare and covers band Nick G West and Tom Beattie also provided entertainment.
A capacity crowd at the Rising Sun, Brixham made a donation which entitled them to taste each of the six competing curries.
A further donation allowed them to dine on a full serving of the curry of their choice plus all the trimmings. Individuals who made additional donations were invited to become the judges.
The event was organised by Brixham’s Sasha Rakonersty in aid of ABF the Soldiers Charity and £371.90 was handed over to retired colonel Robert Jordan, regional director for the South West, who explained the charity’s work.
A further £50.38 was raised for the Service Dogs UK charity.
But Sasha’s drive to support the ABF and UK soldiers serving abroad does not end there.
Local people can continue to both donate and express their support for Soldiers of 2 Rifles by paying £1 and writing a personal message on a specially designed Brixham postcard which will be delivered to a serving solder.
These are available at seven Brixham locations from Ace Taxis to Twit Twoo.Follow
