Gilly Sillet and Katie Duehring started raising money for the East Anglian Ambulance Service just under a year ago.
Gilly Sillet and Katie Duehring began raising money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance just under a year ago and have raised £6,500 so far.
The duo have held a number of fund-raising events since starting their mission.
For their latest event they managed to raise more than £400, with the help of Martin Motlib the owner of Tandoori restaurant Bekash, in Meredith Road, Ipswich.
The restaurant gave 40% of its profit on July 14. Gilly and Katie are so thankful for the help and support they have had from Mr Motlib.
They said: “We would like to thank Martin for his very kind donation to the EAAA and for allowing us to raise our target closer to the £10,000.”
The fundraisers fly out to Uganda in November to help out at the local schools and to continue raising money.
On top of this they are holding a ball at Greshams in Ipswich, on Saturday, November 18, where all money raised will be added to the grand total.
If you would like to help the pair get closer to their goal you can visit their website or book a table at their Greshams event.
