PUPILS from Godley Primary, Hyde, received a treat after their SATs examinations.
They were given a free ‘taster’ lunch at award-winning Adnan’s Indian restaurant and takeaway on Market Street, Hyde.
It was a kind gesture from owner Mohammad Rahman Mizan who describes himself as an “ex sportsman, community activist, journalist and restauranteur”.
The children, who were aged seven and eight, were served a menu of chicken nuggets, samosas, chicken tikka masala, rice and chips.
He said: “It was a first and the taster day was an opportunity for primary children to share experiences about Indian food.
“I am keen to support students and the children had a great time. I found out some had previously eaten at Adnan’s, but there were others who had never eaten at an Indian restaurant
Mohammad, 58, a former international hockey player for Bangladesh, is heavily involved with Tameside Rotary, Just Help Foundation and helped found Hyde Boys’ Cricket Club as well as being an ex-Governor at Hyde Tech.
He also allows organisations to use the restaurant free of charge, saying: “It is part of my business’ responsibility to support our local community whether it be education or sport.
“I would be more than happy to speak to any local groups who should feel free to visit me at Adnan’s.”
