The ecstasy and agony of a day at the races will replace the sound of alarm bells at Sudbury Fire Station next month as it hosts a charity race night.

The event, on Friday, April 26 from 8pm, will raise money for CDH UK, a charity which provides support for children with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, as Sudbury firefighter Paul Carrington’s two-year-old son Frank survived the condition which means children are born with no diaphragm or a hole in it. Proceeds will be split between CDH UK and the Fire Fighters Charity. Tickets cost £10 each and include two drinks and a £2 bet and businesses are needed to sponsor races for £50. For more information or to book your place, call Andy Message on 07840 384655.
