Wildcats first team players felt the full heat of a professional kitchen on Monday night as they attended the Community Trust curry night at the award winning Jinnah Restaurant.

Andy Ellis was one of the first team players swapping the training pitch for a professional kitchen.

The night was a huge success raising over £1,200 for the Trust thanks to a full house of 90 people enjoying some of the best food in the city.

A raffle was also held with prizes including a signed Wildcats shirt, match day tickets for this Sunday’s game against Hull KR and a signed ball resulting in the raffle raising a fantastic £300.

As well as being a profitable event for the Community Trust, the night was a huge hit with the public and players such as Andy Ellis, Danny Kirmond, Oliver Wilkes and Richard Mathers who all got taught a lesson in cooking.

The players helped to prepare the award winning curries while the public eagerly awaited and they didn’t leave disappointed and you can see just how they got on on Super League TV.

“This was a great event which helped to bring the local people of Wakefield together for a brilliant cause,” said Mark.

“I’d like to thank Jinnah for supporting the Trust and everyone who contributed to the night helping us to raise funds which will allow us to do even more for the young people of Wakefield.”
