Annual Diwali celebration to benefit local Ipswich groups

GET ready to shake your booty and enjoy great Indian food.

The Indian Mehfil's annual Diwali charity dinner is coming up on October 19 and Bollywood dancing is on the menu.

It's the sixth staging of the annual charity event that has already raised funds for Legacy, the Ipswich Hospice, the local flood appeal and district sporting groups.

Diabetes Australia is the recipient this year and the entire Indian Mehfil's staff is working for free to boost the coffers.

The dinner will be held in the grass area in front of the restaurant and starts at 5pm. The cost is $30pp for a three-course meal. Children under six are free and it's $10 for children under 14.

The dinner is capped at 300 only.

A T20 cricket match pitting Stumps-Mehfil staff against the QT-Council is planned for the day.
