SHOPPERS in Sudbury are being asked to give generously to a Free Press appeal while rocking to live music this Saturday.
Volunteers from St Nicholas Hospice will be out collecting money for our Community Nurse Appeal between 10am and 3pm, with musical entertainment provided by The Story Boys, a four-piece band made up of Sudbury Upper School students Max Bridges and Steven Barker, both 17, and Jamie Hicks and Alfie Row, both 15.
The boys, who describe their sound as acoustic hip-hop, will be performing outside the town hall and selling copies of their new EP, dressed in Father Christmas outfits.
Jamie said: “We played a charity gig for the hospice at the United Reformed Church a few weeks ago, and Ian Norris asked us to play on Saturday, too.
“We think the hospice is great – we really support the work it does and it is quite inspirational.”
The hospice provides care and support to people with terminal illnesses and their families.
The Free Press is aiming to raise £10,000 to help fund a community nurse for the Sudbury area.
Hospice community fundraiser Ian Norris said: “This collection is a great chance for people to show their support just before Christmas.
“Times are hard but people are always very generous around this time, and I’m really pleased The Story Boys have chosen to support the hospice.”
