A FABULOUS night of entertainment is in store to boost the appeal fund for autistic twins Kate and Samuel Horsfield.

People have been snapping up tickets for the grand event at Gainsborough Sports Centre, Maryon Road, to raise money for the Ipswich pair's intensive therapy, the Lovaas programme.

Special guests of the evening include the twin's parents, Peter and Samantha, plus there will also be live music from band Two for the Road and entertainment from A & R Disco.

A raffle will have a host of prizes up for grabs including the chance to win karate lessons, high street store vouchers, toys, theatre tickets and other gifts including Ipswich Town items.

Organiser Joyce Burrows, 56, who works at Sainsbury's at Warren Heath, said: "It will be a brilliant night and I am really looking forward to it.

"We have had a lot of response and have already sold well over 100 tickets. Businesses have been really good about donating prizes and we are very grateful.

"Anything we can do to boost funds for the twins will be worth it. It is leading up to Christmas and can be difficult for everybody.

"But the twin's parents have to think about spending their money on the Lovaas Programme, rather than other things. We just want to help in every way possible. They need all the help they can get."

The twins parents hope to face paying £60,000 for their youngsters specialist education over the next two years. Already many readers joined in an Evening Star sponsored walk in aid of the three-year-olds.

Joyce hopes to raise at least £500 on the night and is confident she will exceed this target.

It is a ticket only event and people are urged to buy them before the Monday November 26 deadline. Tickets won't be sold at the door on the night which lasts 7 pm until midnight.

For tickets priced £5 adult and £2 children contact Joyce Burrows on Ipswich 717228.
