Speed of Sight Enjoys an Incredible Curry Fundraising Lunch

Last week Speed of Sight had the honour and privilege of being hosted by the Spinningfields Curry Club, a monthly event hosted in Spinningfields, Manchester, supporting a different charity each month. The curry club includes a full three course Indian lunch starting with a selection of poppadoms, chutneys, and pickles, followed by a fantastic range of Indian starters and, finally, a gorgeous trio of curries along with rice and naan bread. The Spinningfields Curry Club supports a local charity every month with its ticket sales, along with donations collected at the event, and sales of raffle tickets for some amazing prizes!

Each month the curry club is graced with the presence of special guest speakers and entertainers to delight the audience as they enjoy their delicious Indian feast. This month Speed of Sight had the pleasure of being blessed with a guest appearance by none other than British racing driver Ben Collins, better known as the original white-suited Stig from the world-famous BBC series, Top Gear. Ben enthralled the audience with his destructive tales of working as a James Bond stunt driver and the number of high-end luxury sports cars they had to absolutely destroy in the process of making the movies! He also announced his intentions to join with Speed of Sight as one of our patrons!

After Ben’s amazing tales from the track, our audience were delighted by the comedic impressions of Les Gibson! A finalist of season 5 of Britain’s Got Talent in 2011, Les Gibson is a talented impressionist who stunned the judges with his spot-on impressions of Ant and Dec. Les has only refined his craft since then, and gave us topical, satirical, and hilarious impressions of politicians, entertainers, and celebrities including Boris Johnson, Donald Trump, and Gordon Ramsay. Les has been performing impressions since he was 11 years old in the school yard, and his expertise shows through his fantastic performances!

Speed of Sight had a truly incredible curry lunch and offer our thanks to the Spinningfields Curry Club! We are excited to be working alongside with Ben Collins and were honoured to have a personal show from Les Gibson himself! Alongside the ticket sales, raffle prizes, and donations, a silent auction was run with donated items, raising even more money for our charity’s operations.
