Fundraising to help a storm-damaged Sudbury charity reopen is under way.

Fifteen trees, weighing around 25 tonnes each, came down in strong winds at the Eden-Rose Coppice in Quay Lane late last month.

The destruction has left the charity, which provides a retreat for cancer sufferers and a safe place to learn for children with disabilities, facing a £10,000 clean-up bill and unable to open.

Founder Rob Brooks said the charity was holding a reggae night at The Quay Theatre to raise money. A resident who walks past the site has already donated £100.

“A reggae band has come forward to support us and we have made a good start,” said Mr Brooks.

The Jah Warriors will be playing at the Quay on December 7. Tickets cost £10 and include a Caribbean meal. Call 07811 111788.
