An annual ladies-only curry night held in aid of the hospice campaign returns this month.
Scrummy Mummy Curry Night began in 2008, when Alexander's grandmother, Carmel, decided to cook Indian food for a charity feast held in the boy's name.
Fiona said her son was a 'complete foodie', and the young critic was a huge fan of Carmel's curry.
"He preferred his gran's cooking," she said.
"He often told me that mine is not as good as my mum's. The cooking gene skipped me all together and he was always pleased to tell me that!"
Last year the evening was held at Zaman of Datchet in Horton Road, and raised £1,000.
The restaurant is hosting the evening again on Thursday, January 30, from 7.30pm.
Staff are donating their time for free, and the Indian restaurant is providing the meal at cost price.
Women can come in parties or on their own.
Fiona said: "Lots of mums of children who went to school with Alexander come, so it's a special evening in that sense.
"Any woman will be made to feel welcome. It's a fun and relaxed evening, just for ladies."
Tickets cost £22 for two courses and a glass of wine.
