School students team up with Sudbury Chamber of Commerce to support local businesses
Secondary school students have partnered up with Sudbury Chamber of Commerce to help encourage people to shop locally over the festive season.
Pupils from Ormiston Sudbury Academy and Thomas Gainsborough School in Great Cornard have created their own digital leaflets to highlight the importance of supporting local businesses in Sudbury.
Emphasising the significance of the initiative, Robin Bailey, chairman of Sudbury Chamber of Commerce, said: “It’s well known that retailers have been seriously hit by internet trade.
“Customers themselves have incurred problems with returning unsatisfactory or ill fitting goods, with delivered items often being left outside and even stolen in some cases,” he added.
