Baglan Lodge No. 6079 decided to hold its annual summer curry night event following the continued easing of government COVID-19 restrictions. The evening was held again this year at the Cinnamon Kitchen restaurant on the Aberavon beach front.
This was the fifth year that the ‘curry night’ had taken place, with almost £3,000 raised for local charities. This year 46 Brethren attended from all the Port Talbot Lodges and £750 was raised for the RMBI 2021 Festival ‘Big Week’.
W. Bro. Richard Evans, IPM of Baglan Lodge, said: “Again this year we had a really great evening with bonhomie, which we’ve missed during the pandemic. We were able to spend time together, have delicious meal, chat, laugh and raise funds for a worthy cause.
“Special thanks must go to those who donated raffle prizes, and to Ram and his team at the Cinnamon Kitchen for their continued support and generosity with the £100 donation to the final amount raised on the evening.
“From what originally started out as an excuse to have a little get together during the summer recess it’s grown from strength to strength with people already contacting me trying to book their seats for next year!”
