A Sudbury charity received a boost of more than £2,500, after a building society matched the funds raised at a recent quiz night.

The event, which took place in November, was supported by more than 30 businesses and raised £1,290 for the Just Talk Campaign.

It was organised by Ipswich Building Society employee Christine Whitling, who volunteers at the charity.

The building society has now agreed to match this amount and donate a further £1,290 to the charity, which offers counselling services and drop-in sessions to help people with their emotional wellbeing.

Nathan Wade, manager of the Ipswich Building Society, said: “Christine was passionate about the work of the Just Talk Campaign and she wanted to support it further.

“We were overwhelmed with the impact of the Just Talk Campaign.”

Glenda Roberts, chief executive of the Just Talk Campaign, added: “The trustees are extremely grateful to these businesses for their generosity and continued support of the Just Talk Campaign.”
