Tucking into a tikka and a good cause

PRINCESS Anne, the business elite and military brass all turned out yesterday for the Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch, raising around £350,000 for ABF The Soldier’s Charity, which has aided returning and retired British troops since 1944. After the masala was munched and the dahl was devoured bidding got underway in a charity auction. The Princess Royal then met with some of the veterans, including Martyn Compton, a soldier-turned race-car driver for Team Brit, pictured above left.
