REGULARS at a town centre pub have raised hundreds of pounds for good causes for the second time this year.

The Brewery Tap in East Street, Sudbury, raised £930 from a customer prize draw during a recent beer festival.

The money was donated to Helping Hands – a charity which campaigns on behalf of the Sudbury Resource Centre, to support adults with learning disabilities – and the Salvation Army Day Centre in Station Road, which helps the elderly.

Phyllis Woodate, who helped to organise the event, said: “We hold the beer festival twice a year and as part of that we raise money for local good causes.

“We know how valuable both these groups are to the town and the fantastic services they provide.”

Major Jean Crozier from the Salvation Army Day Care Centre, said the charity was grateful for the pub’s fundraising efforts and the money would be put to good use.

Marion Corner, manager at the Sudbury Resource Centre, said: “It is fantastic to know the services provided by Helping Hands and the centre are being recognised by the community.”

A beer festival at the pub earlier in the year raised more than £900, which was donated Go START and Hillside School.
