Hundreds of people turned out for a charity football tournament and summer fete at AFC Sudbury’s grounds in Brundon Lane on Sunday.
Organised by Lee Bacon, manager of the family-owned Sudbury Appliances shop in Cross Street, the event raised a whopping £4,500 for charity Cancer Research UK.
Lee has organised a charity football match every year for the last four years in memory of his uncle, Terry Bacon, who died of cancer in 2016, with the money raised going to the national cancer charity.
AFC Sudbury gifts the use of its grounds for the event.
This year, Lee’s family organised more football teams to take part – a total of four – and got the support of 50 fete stalls, including crafts and children’s face painting.
There was also a big raffle, with 100 different prizes.
Lee said: "We raised £1,000 more than last year. The football tournament was really well supported. There were hundreds of people there."
Teams representing Domestic Appliances, Baker & Baker Bespoke Kitchens, A & B Glass andThe Five Bells pub all took part, with Domestic Appliances crowned the winners.
Also attending the fete were the Phoenix Suffolk Community Marchers and fire fighters from Sudbury.
