Diss chef lands himself in hot water for charity

A Diss restaurant served up a special Children in Need dish when one of its members of staff jumped in a 'curry bath'.

Alim Uddin, of the Spice Cottage curry house, in the Market Place, sat in the bath full of spiced water and vegetables on Wednesday to raise funds for the charity.

The chef endured the hot bath for about an hour as staff collected money for the BBC's Children in Need appeal.

Carnival Queen Annabel Oakes also joined charity fundraisers for the event in the centre of Diss, but opted to keep her feet dry.

Event organiser Emdad Hussain, manager at the Indian and Nepalese restaurant, said: 'Children in Need do superb work to help families. We are a family run restaurant and a big fan of the charity, so we wanted to do something fun to support them.'

'We would like to say a big thank you to all the Diss people who generously supported the fundraiser, and we will be keeping a donations bucket in the restaurant for the next week if people want to add donations.'

The latest charity fundraiser comes after waiters at the Spice Cottage dressed up as super hero characters earlier this year to help raise thousands of pounds for East Anglia's Children's Hospices.
