The unlikely duo will be taking part in the British Asian Trust’s fundraising campaign ‘The Big Curry Night In’, a charity event which supports struggling restaurants amid the coronavirus pandemic. Other participants include cricketer Jos Buttler, DJ and musician Naughty Boy, TV and radio presenter Konnie Huq, comedian and actor Sanjeev Bhaskar, and musician Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
The fundraising campaign takes place from March 5 to March 14 and encourages UK citizens to either make their own curry dish or order take-away and make a charitable donation towards the British Asian Trust.
Participants have the chance for one of the British Asian Trust ambassadors to drop in on their curry night.
In a recorded speech on Monday, Prince Charles said: “Ladies and gentlemen, I need hardly say that I do rather hope you might all be able to participate in this!”
All money raised will be doubled by the UK government according to the British Asian Trust.
This will be the second annual Big Curry Night In, with the first raising over £30,000 in just 10 days.
Money from the fundraising efforts will go towards the Trust’s other projects which help to support those living in the poorest parts of South Asia.
Some of this work includes improving educational facilities and livelihoods of South Asian families.
The Trust also supports the work of anti-trafficking movements in the region by removing demand for forced labour and protecting those most at risk.
