River trip adventure

THREE charities have teamed up to provide a river trip adventure for people with learning disabilities.

Around 30 members of Sudbury’s Gateway Club will be collected by Go START buses on Wednesday and taken to the Granary in Quay Lane before boarding boats owned by the River Stour Trust at 6pm.

The three boats will then sail down the river to Cornard Lock for a barbecue and games.

John Phillips, Go START transport manager, said: “This is a great example of three voluntary organisations working closely together to provide some enjoyment to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.

“It will be a fantastic evening for the members of Sudbury Gateway Club and an opportunity that some of them have never had before.”

Go START has also organised a number of trips for members of its dial-a-ride service and for residents of care homes in August.

On August 1, there will be a day trip to Southwold departing from Sudbury at 10am, while a week later, on August 8, the group’s buses will leave the town at midday to visit Flatford Mill and Dedham.

On August 29, there will be a trip to Morrison’s in Ipswich.
