Bangkok Lounge Shefford, the award-winning fine Thai dining restaurant, is again hosting the Shefford Annual Duck Race, taking place on Sunday 3 July from 12.00 noon to 4.00 pm.
The event, which will feature Thai cuisine provided by Bangkok Lounge and a skittle stall provided by main sponsor Country Properties, will raise funds for Acorn Pre-School and the Mighty Oaks, Charity No: 1042353.
Looking ahead to the event, Motin Miah, owner and general manager at Bangkok Lounge, said: “We love to be involved in community events like this. The Shefford Annual Duck Race is great fun – a family day out that really brings the community together. We’ve made some great memories at previous duck races, so we’re delighted to be hosting the event yet again.”
Acorn Pre-School is the only community pre-school in Shefford and, as a charity, relies heavily on funds raised at events such as the Duck Race. The Mighty Oaks is the breakfast and after-school club for children who attend the pre-school and pupils at Shefford Lower School.
Jacqui Lewis, Chairperson and Trustee at Acorn Pre-School and the Mighty Oaks, said: “It’s great to have the support of Bangkok Lounge for this event once again. Their delicious food and fabulous garden give the people of Shefford even more reason to come along and join in the fun. Last year, we raised £3,000, which helped us maintain our building and buy new equipment for both the pre-school itself and the breakfast and after-school clubs.”
Occupying an historical building dating back to the 1600s and sitting on the banks of the river Flit, Bangkok Lounge Shefford prides itself on the originality of its genuine Thai menu. All dishes are prepared from fresh ingredients such as herbs, fruits and plants native to Thailand. Chefs at the restaurant further enhance these unique dishes by making them to each individual’s own personal taste.
The restaurant allows diners to enjoy its exquisite cuisine al fresco in the warmer months or in the ambience of its authentic Thai interior all year round.
