A Sudbury charity is celebrating a third successful year of working with The Big Lottery Fund.

The Bridge Project, in Gainsborough Street, has two years left to run of the five-year scheme, which helps to fund courses for adults with learning disabilities, including bicycle maintenance, literacy, creative arts and cookery.

Mirjam Southwell, Lottery Project manager, said: “It’s been a very rewarding year and we’re delighted to be able to say that we’ve met all our targets.”

This year, The Bridge Project has also had an artist in residence. Jen Sendall worked alongside students to produce an exhibition called Recycle, Renew, Reuse at The Foyer Gallery at University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich.
