OUR Community Nurse appeal received another boost this week as staff from Greggs in Sudbury handed over £500.

The store on Market Hill was given the money to donate to a charity of their choice after raising £707 for The Greggs Foundation earlier this year.

Manager Phyll Emberson said: “We cycled the distance of Sudbury to my home town, of Elgin in Scotland, which was 572 miles on an exercise bike, which was brilliant.”

The store’s total was the highest in the south east of England, and the third highest in the country, and the team decided that St Nicholas Hospice Care was a very worthy recipient of the reward.

“We often read about it and have many customers that talk about the excellent work it does and we just think it’s a wonderful cause,” said Mrs Emberson.

Ian Norris, community fundraiser at St Nicholas Hospice Care, said: “I am so pleased that Greggs has donated this money to the Free Press’ appeal.

“This is a very generous contribution that reflects the affection and support of the people of Sudbury, and the readers of the paper.”
