At Home…

Celebrate FRANK Water Karma Korma at Home!

Host your own Karma Korma event! 

Whether it’s a Bollywood buffet or a three course dinner, use it as a good way of returning hospitality, catching up with friends, reuniting family or even match-making! Ask every guest to donate the price of a takeaway!

Or…get together a group of friends and arrange a Karma Korma Come Dine with Me. Take turns to host each other and award marks out of ten for food

 

“We decided that it would be much easier if we teamed up with our great friends who also have a passion for India, Indian food and FRANK Water. We went to our favourite Indian restaurant in Bath, Temptation, to make plans and get inspired, deciding on a menu of old favourites and a couple of brand new dishes to keep things exciting (lamb chilli curry as eaten by hunters in Rajasthan (a Rick Stein recipe). Sue made beautiful invitations and we invited 12 people to join us for a feast on a cold dark January night, suggesting a donation of £15 per person via our justgiving page and to bring their own drinks. We aimed to raise £180 and got £185 in the end. John put some Bollywood film trailers on his laptop and played them through his projector onto the wall giving us a really great atmosphere to eat our delicious feast. All our friends were so impressed and can’t wait for the next Karma Korma dinner!”

FRANK Water Karma Korma At School

At school..

Think outside the bake sale box and ask your classmates to bring in Indian-style cakes and bakes.

Enlist an artistic parent or teacher to face paint children (in return for a donation) during break times and lunch!

Refresh and Reuse! Bring a plastic bottle of water to school with you. Once you’ve drunk the water, re-fasten the top and cut a slot in the side. Ask your family to empty their pockets of loose change into the bottle throughout National Curry Week

 

 

This year, we organised a Karma Korma event which was co-ordinated across Arup offices in Africa, Europe and across the UK. From Cardiff to Cape Town, over 100 employees took part in the lunchtime event which involved bringing and sharing Indian food to eat with colleagues, combined with a presentation over skype which gave some background to the important work FRANK do in India and Nepal, and the partnership we have with them. As well as the lunchtime offering, different offices had other ideas to raise money throughout the day, including an Indian themed bake sale, and chai tea bags on offer at tea points. In total we raised over £800 for FRANK Water, which was boosted by match funding from Arup, and had a sociable and informative event which everyone enjoyed! It took a bit of organisation but having all the offices joined up made everyone feel a lot closer.

At work…

Celebrate your lunch hour!  Ask everyone to bring in their favourite Indian dish and when 1 o’ clock strikes, stop work, serve up your Karma Korma feast and enjoy time spent away from your desk. Don’t forget to make a donation.

Cakes in the office are always popular.  Make some money out of your bakes and donate it to FRANK Water. Better still, spice your buns with cinnamon, cardamom and other Indian flavours for a Karma Korma bake-off

Organise an office night out with drinks and Indian snacks and kick off with our water quiz! Get people into teams and ask them to pay a donation as an entry fee.
