A national mental health charity has been selected as one of three official beneficiaries of this year’s Sudbury Fun Run.

The annual run, which takes place on Good Friday, March 25, is one of the major longstanding sporting and fundraising events in the town, attracting 500 runners each year.

Richmond Fellowship, part of Recovery Focus, the new national group of mental health and substance support charities, provides both community and supported housing services and funds raised from the run will help support the people accessing services in the area.

Matt Webb, community link worker for Richmond Fellowship, said: “This is a massive achievement for our service and is a testament to the hard work our team has been doing to raise the profile of the Fellowship in the local community.

“Our staff and those who use our service will be running and walking on the day – so do come and support us along the route, or at the finish line in Belle Vue Park.”
