A successful annual charity dinner staged by a Keighley town centre restaurant raised thousands to help poor and needy people in Pakistan.

The organisers of the event, at the Balti House in Albert Street, say the latest dinner raised £3,551 for the Ibrahim Trust.

The trust was founded by Balti House manager, Mohammed Zamir Hanif, in honour of his son, Mohammed Ibrahim, who died from a rare illness aged 11.

Mr Hanif said: “We had guest appearances by Mickey and Minnie Mouse, face-painting, mehndi painting and live music.

“The trust has been successfully running for eight years now, and has helped thousands of deprived people in Pakistan.

“We would like to thank everyone who came along and supported the dinner, as well as all the businesses that donated towards the raffle.”

Mr Hanif also paid tribute to staff and sixth form pupils from University Academy Keighley, who attended to help with the catering on the night.
