Spaces are available for people wishing to join a Sudbury charity’s weekly lunch club.

The Bridge Project, in Gainsborough Street, has been running a Tuesday Lunch Club for more than four years and is inviting those who have not attended before to come along.

Each week the charity, which supports disadvantaged adults, provides roast dinner and home-made pudding to the over 60s.

As well as offering food the club is seen as a great way to socialise and make friends.

“I just like the company,” said Thelma Best, who has been a member of the club since it started.

“I come to Tuesday Lunch club to meet people, chat with friends and have a good old catch up.”

Beryl Maksimovic, who also regularly attends, said she enjoyed the opportunity to have a traditional roast dinner.

“They do lovely food, it is always a roast,” she said. “You can’t really cook a roast dinner just for one at home, but they take care of all the food, cooking and washing up. I look forward to it every week.”

Rob Allen, a member of The Bridge Project who organises the popular event, said there was always a friendly atmosphere.

The club runs from midday to 2pm every Tuesday. A main meal is £5 and a pudding £1.
