First #socialcarecurry night a huge success

september-eat-ups-names

More than 200 people who love social care and curry met for the first #socialcarecurry last night.

Organised over Twitter by @MattBowsher1 and @GeorgeJulian the concept has quickly become a hugely popular.

Last night there were twelve UK eat-ups in Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Canterbury, Cardiff, Chesterfield, Dorchester, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester and Southampton.

There was also one international eat-up in Vancouver.

Writing on the Social Care Curry Club blog @GeorgeJulian said: “When Matt and I initially discussed Social Care Curry Club we envisaged a handful of people coming together, to talk about social care and enjoy a curry. It was intended to be a relaxed and casual interaction, no presentations, no sales, no pitches, just people who cared about social care coming together.

“We’ll let you into a badly kept secret now, we completely underestimated the appetite and interest that there would be.”

The next #socialcarecurry eat-up is on 5 December. Follow @sociacarecurry and #socialcarecurry for updates.

Last night more than 200 people who love social care and curry met for the first #socialcarecurry meet up. Here’s some of the reasons people loved it so much.
