THE final figure raised during a year of fundraising will be revealed at a celebratory party.

To mark the end of a campaign to raise £10,000 for Helping Hands – a charity dedicated to supporting Sudbury Resource Centre – a party is being held at AFC Sudbury’s MEL Group Stadium on Saturday.

An auction with celebrity donations, including a signed picture from the cast of Eastenders, two tickets to watch Ipswich Town and a signed book by Cockney Rebel Steve Harley, will also be taking place.

Marion Corner, manager of the centre in Chilton Industrial Estate, said: “We are hopeful we have raised more than the £10,000 target, which would be fabulous, and are so grateful to all the people and organisations, which have supported us throughout the appeal and hope they will all come along on to celebrate with us.”

Tickets for the event, which starts at 7pm, are available from Sudbury Resource Centre and the Tourist Information Centre priced at £12.50 for adults and £5 for children over five.
