When 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.
