The work of a Sudbury charity which has been helping those in need for four decades will be celebrated with a party.

Helping Hands, which was set up in 1973 and is dedicated to supporting adults with learning difficulties at Sudbury Community Hub, is to hold a 1970s-themed fancy dress party on September 18.

The event will feature photographs of the charity’s work throughout the years and be attended by its supporters.

Jack Owen, the charity’s chairman, said the organisation played a vital role.

“Everyone at Helping Hands is very proud of the role it has played supporting and campaigning on behalf of the centre for the last 40 years,” he said.

“To keep going for four decades on a very limited budget is a huge achievement and we are so grateful to all the volunteers who have supported us.”

The party will take place at Sudbury Community Hub in Northern Road from midday to 4pm.
