THREE more restaurants are opening their doors tomorrow night for a special fundraising evening to help the victims of the Asian tsunami disaster.

The fundraising effort by six Bangladeshi and Indian restaurants in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Stowmarket and Woodbridge got under way last week.

The Dhaka in Ipswich and Khan's in Stowmarket were the first to open for special evenings – with proceeds from their night going to the Evening Star's appeal to help the village of Negombo in Sri Lanka.

Tonight it is the turn of the Bekash in Ipswich, Bombay Nite in Walton, Felixstowe, and the Royal Bengal in Woodbridge to hold their special charity nights.

The Maharani in Ipswich is also to take part and will announce a date later.

Some of the venues are planning to hold extra fundraising activities, such as auctions of items, on the evenings as well as serving food.
