Shalims Indian Restaurant in Weymouth has launched a ‘Give Back Sunday’ initiative for a local charity.
This follows their Key Workers 2020 initiative which saw over 600 takeaway meals donated. Shalim Abs, owner of the family-run balti house, said: “We launched our ‘Key Workers 2020’ initiative on our social media platforms at the end of April. The aim was to donate 20 Indian takeaway meals every day for 20 days during May to ‘Key Workers’ across Weymouth, Portland and Dorchester. We ended up providing well over 600 meals to the hardworking heroes who have put themselves on the front line to keep us safe and kept our community and economy running.”
The new initiative recognises that many local charities are struggling and seeing their revenue dry up. Shalim is asking people to nominate local charities that are close to their heart.
“What we are asking people to do is to visit our website, click the ‘Give Back Sunday’ button and nominate a local charity that they would like to help. The only thing we ask is that it must be a local charity. My team and I will choose one charity and then on Sunday, 28th June we will donate 50% of all of our takings to that charity,” he added.
You can get involved by nominating a local charity at www.shalimsbaltihouse.co.uk or on Sunday 28th June by ordering a takeaway from Shalims Indian Restaurant on 01305 783515.
