Maaya to Hold Charity Evening to Save Lives in Milton Keynes

Posted 23rd May 2017

Maaya Indian Kitchen & Bar in The Hub is putting on a charity fundraising comedy and a curry night in support of the Community First Responders (CFR) in Milton Keynes. 

On Wednesday 14 June, hilarious celebrity comedian, Jo Enright from Phoenix Nights will be the performer for the evening together with internationally renowned magician Neil Henry. The sit-down event, which costs just £24.95 per person also includes a succulent three course meal created by Maaya’s head chef. 

“All the proceeds will be donated to the charity and we’re hoping to raise a total of £1,500 which is the cost of an emergency response kit for a new CFR,” says joint owner and manager at Maaya, Mo Abdul. “The Community First Responders are often the first people to arrive at a cardiac arrest and those crucial minutes can save someone’s life. They work completely voluntarily, which is incredibly admirable and something we’re happy to support in any way we can.” 

Spaces are strictly limited so please book early to reserve your seat. The evening will also include a charity auction. 

One of MK’s CFRs Gareth Brocklebank said: “In the last year, CFRs have attended 3266 emergency 999 calls in our area and becoming a CFR is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. From helping someone experiencing chest pain or breathing difficulties through to being first on scene performing CPR at a cardiac arrest, CFRs are a vital part of the ambulance service.  With Maaya’s help hosting this fundraiser, the money raised could put another much needed CFR on the road in MK.”
