The Bridge Project in Sudbury, which helps disadvantaged adults, is celebrating the unveiling of its new kitchen.

Work started in September to transform the old kitchen to allow for its expanding catering requirements. The makeover and kitchen upgrade was made possible due to a funding bid to The Postcode Lottery.

The Postcode Community Trust awarded £18,560.

Jo Searle, chief executive at the charity said: “We received notice of our funding success back in April this year and everyone here was delighted.

“The extension plays a significant part in our long term goal to improve and develop the catering services.

“The new kitchen means we can do extra food deliveries to people who want a delicious hot meal brought to their door; with the additional space we can support and offer training to those with more significant disabilities; we can multiply our outside catering offering and provide food for more internal and external events.”

The Bridge Project lunch delivery service is available in Sudbury and Great Cornard, with expansion to Long Melford, Acton and Great Waldingfield planned for later in the year.
