Efforts by a Sudbury charity to deliver hot meals to the elderly and housebound have been stepped up.

The Bridge Project in Gainsborough Street currently sends out meals to people in the Sudbury community, but is now extending its lunch round to Great Cornard and Acton. There are also plans for deliveries to Long Melford in the future.

Anesta Newson, founder of the charity which provides support and training for adults with learning difficulties, said the service sent out meals five days a week.

“Our lunch deliveries have always been a popular service,” she said.

“It is very exciting that we will soon be able to provide extended deliveries.”

The service was launched two years ago and caters for those unable to get to the charity’s cafe.

Kingsley Everett, who has worked at the centre for 13 years and is co-ordinator of the lunch deliveries, said he believed the increase in rounds would be welcome.

“Our customers really look forward to the hand-made lunches,” he said. “Cooking for one can often be a chore, and our lunch deliveries ensure they are getting a healthy, heart-warming meal.”
