A Sudbury charity which supports adults with learning disabilities is calling for four more volunteers.

Helping Hands, which raises money for the Sudbury Community Hub, celebrated its 40th birthday last week.

The charity says it is still in need of four new committee members after the retirement of several volunteers earlier this year.

Anne Molyneaux, group secretary, said: “Due to a variety of reasons such as age and other commitments, a number of our committee members have stepped down this year, which has left us very short on numbers.

“It is important we replace at least some of these people as a matter of urgency to enable us to remain operational in the longer term.”

Mrs Molyneaux added: “We are looking for community-minded individuals who may have some spare time on their hands.

“We are particularly keen to attract some younger people on to the committee or maybe people looking to get back into a routine after being out of work for a while.”

Anyone interested in volunteering can contact chairman Jack Owen on 017873 74025 or on unionjack1@talktalk.net.
