A mouthwatering mix of East meets West has raised more than £1,000 for our patient care.
Sheffield’s oldest Indian restaurant, Ashoka, teamed up with city pizza experts Proove throughout August to deliver a very special taste experience.
For that strictly limited period, Ashoka’s famous Taxi Driver curry was added to one of Proove’s acclaimed Italian pizza blends of smoked mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, fresh red onion and authentic Neapolitan pizza dough.
The limited-edition pizza cost £12.50 and was on sale at Ashoka and both Proove’s Sheffield and Manchester restaurants.
And a generous slice of the revenue generated by Taxi Driver Pizza sales amounted to £1,172.50 which went to St Luke’s as part of Proove’s ongoing community contribution scheme.
Clare Collingworth, of our fundraising team, said: “We were delighted that two such well-known Sheffield establishments teamed up to support St Luke’s in this wonderful way.
“At St Luke’s, we understand how important food is for wellbeing and nourishment.
“Thank you to Ashoka and Proove for coming together with us at such a difficult time – their support means so much to our patients and their families.”
