Norwich City Football Club legend Jeremy Goss was at a special charity evening at the Desh World Foods Supermarket in Magdalen Street, Norwich, on May 1 to help raise funds for The Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB).

The event was sponsored by Shana Foods, one of Desh Supermarket’s main suppliers of Asian foods. Nikhil Desai from Shana Foods and Abul Hussain, director of Desh Supermarket, welcomed guests and encouraged them to enjoy freshly-cooked paratha bread, curry, spicy rice and lamb kebabs, together with non-alcoholic drinks, which were served in the Desh Deli during the evening. Guests were also given a goody bag containing Shana Foods items, plus incense sticks and Desh shopping vouchers.

Members of the Magdalen Street & Anglia Square Traders Association (MATA) were also invited and helped to make the opening evening a success in raising awareness of the importance of the multi-cultural shopping area of Norwich.

Mike Talbot, CEO of the charity NNAB, along with his colleague Donna Minto, presided over the prize raffle draw, and thanked all those who had helped raise funds for their charity.
