The Naaz Indian restaurant in Mansfield Woodhouse saw a busier than usual evening when it supported Mansfield couple Keith and Sylvia Johnson in their efforts to raise £1,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The proceeds of an auction supported their fundraising and the restaurant donated half of the meal cost to the charity.
The evening was hosted by the Mayor of Mansfield, Kate Allsop, and included a special menu and a quiz and auction
It backed Keith and Sylvia’s entry into the gruelling four-day driving and navigation Mac4x4 Challenge in March, which covered 750 miles through Wales, Ireland England.
The couple’s home-prepared 24-year-old Discovery completed the trip unscathed, despite battling horizontal rain in some of the night sections and blizzards in both the Irish and Welsh mountains.
In addition to the Naaz night, the team used vehicle sponsorship supported by local companies including Brown Shipley financial advisers, Mansfield Fire and Safety, LivePay and Fittapart.
The coupled thanked everyone who helped make their venture a success.
