A charity raised £419 during a fundraising and awareness campaign at Sainsbury’s in Sudbury last weekend.

Members of Sudbury-based The Befriending Scheme packed bags in a bid to raise much needed funds and to let people know about the services they offer - providing friendship and learning opportunities for adults from vulnerable groups.

Rob Taylor, marketing and promotions officer, said: “It was very successful. We raised £419 and we met some new potential volunteers.”
