A team of runners and walkers who took part in the Sudbury Fun Run are expected to have raised £2,000 for The Bridge Project.
Supporters of the town charity, based in Gainsborough Street, included staff members, students and their family and friends.
All completed the five-mile course on Good Friday, and charity founder Anesta Newson said she was delighted with their efforts.
“It was a brilliant day and it was fantastic to see so many of our students and supporters running for the Bridge, showing just how great a community we have here in Sudbury,” she said.
“Money raised will continue to support the education and vocational training we provide for our students.”
So far, the charity has collected £1,020 but, once all the donations have been collected, hope to reach £2,000.
The project, which was set up in 1995, helps disadvantaged adults.
