 Bangkok Lounge Shefford to host event as part of campaign to raise £5,000 for Amir Khan Foundation

Bangkok Lounge Group, the owner of fine Thai dining restaurants in Bedfordshire, is holding a fundraising event at its Shefford restaurant on 4 May.

The event is part of the group’s campaign to raise £5,000 for the Amir Khan Foundation throughout 2017.

Together with Penny Appeal, the Amir Khan Foundation is working tirelessly to ensure water-scarce communities gain reliable access to safe, clean water that can help save lives, instead of endangering them with life-threatening illnesses. Safe water allows crops to flourish, prosper and provide nutritious food, not wither and die. It allows mothers and children to spend time at home with their family, at school or with friends, instead of walking countless miles day after day.

Already, Bangkok Lounge has raised £360 for the Amir Khan Foundation and it plans to boost that figure significantly on 4 May.

Tickets to the event cost £40 per person to include a delicious and authentic two-course Thai meal. As well as a raffle with amazing prizes, a range of sports memorabilia will be up for auction.

Tables are available in groups of two, four, six and eight.

Funds raised at the event will help provide life-giving wells across Africa and enable needy communities to share in fresh water for the very first time.

Motin Miah, owner of Bangkok Lounge Group, said: “Here, we have the luxury of being able to take water for granted. Yet, one innocent life is taken every 20 seconds as a result of consuming unclean waters. It may seem unreal to us, but the water crisis is real and affects millions of people.”

The fundraising event takes place from 7pm on Thursday 4th May at

Bangkok Lounge Shefford

Book your ticket by emailing or calling 01462 338287 / 338292. A 50% non refundable deposit per person will be required. As this is a unique event with limited seating we anticipate the tickets to sell quickly.
