Helping hand for families

Support for needy families over Christmas in the shape of food hampers got a welcome boost this week.

Funding was provided by county councillors John Sayers and Colin Spence, who are pictured with Food Bank co-ordinator Beryl Worvell, left, and Jane Hatton, from Sudbury Market Town Partnership. They each donated £1,000 from their locality budgets for the bank, run by Stour Valley Vineyard Church and supported by Waitrose.
