Social Care Curry Club

Love curry? Love social care? You are in!

Welcome Vancouver

Hello Canada MapWhen we started Social Care Curry Club we never, ever, considered that people would be as interested as they have been. We are completely blown away with the interest and support for such a simple idea. Yesterday we stretched our eat-ups to double figures when Brighton joined the UK list of curry club gatherings.

Today something even more wild than that happened! Ernie got in touch to say that they were thinking of arranging a gathering in Vancouver! The term social care isn’t used over there so they have called their curry eat-up Connecting Over Curry, we’ll have a blog post from them in due course, but you can also book to join them if you’re based near Vancouver or are holidaying or conferencing in Canada. They are meeting up on 4 September, more info in the link.

It has began to feel a bit like we may have underestimated the pull of the social care curry! In a few short weeks we have over two thousand hits on this blog, over 400 hundred followers on twitter, eighteen volunteer hosts, ten UK and one international eat-ups, and 165 people meeting up together in September. All with only one membership criteria, love social care and love curry, and one rule – don’t sell anything.

Once again thank you all for your support and please do drop us a tweet or leave a comment if you’d like to organise a social care curry eat-up where you are.

Hello Brighton!

Last night we reached double figures when Brighton joined the curry club party. There had been a number of people asking about Brighton a few weeks back, but yesterday Susan and Kathryn volunteered to host a gathering, so talk turned to action and at this stage in time we have eight people gathering on the 5 September to eat curry at the seaside. Book a ticket here if you’d like to join them.

It really is that simple, if you’d like curry and your area of the map is looking a bit empty then drop us a tweet offering to host, with the name of your preferred curry house, and the rest will magically sort itself out. Kathryn, one of our Brighton hosts is only visiting, she doesn’t even live there but what a great way to ensure you don’t spend your evening holed up in a hotel room with a crusty sarnie for tea.

Come on people, give it a try. What’s the worst that can happen? People don’t sign up and you don’t get curry this time but you know you tried. So if you fancy it get in touch, looking at the map I think it would look even better with a flag in Devon or Cornwall, North Wales, the North East or Ireland!
