THE transport minister was among the guests at a fundraising curry night for wounded soldiers’ charity Help for Heroes.

Mike Penning, who is also MP for Hemel Hempstead, joined 70 guests for the event at Martins Pond pub in Potten End.

Magic Circle member Michael Gee performed magic tricks with pub staff, Peter Gee sang and there was an after-dinner auction and raffle during the event last month.

Mike Penning MP said: “My wife Angie and I had a wonderful night. I congratulate the organisers, staff and locals for raising an incredible £4,160 for Help for Heroes.

“I particularly commend the staff who worked unpaid for the evening.”
