A charity based in Sudbury, which builds holiday cottages to help people with disabilities, has won a national award.

The Lin Berwick Trust, run from The Christopher Centre in Gainsborough Street, has received a Rose Award from VisitEngland for service excellence.

The Trust has three holiday cottages where severely disabled people can holiday with their family or carers with equipment and facilities. The Rose Award is for its property in Cornwall.

The Long Melford Swan, a restaurant with rooms run by Stuart Inns, has also won a Rose Award from VisitEngland for service excellence.

VisitEngland head of industry development, Pam Foden, said: “The Long Melford Swan goes above and beyond in making guests feel welcome and is helping to build England’s reputation as a destination where the customer always comes first.”
