Sudbury charity, the Bridge Project, held a Christmas coffee morning for the charity’s supporters last Wednesday 3rd December, at the courtyard café on Gainsborough Street.
Just under 50 people attended to start their festive shopping with the Bridge Project and raise money for the charity. The Bridge Project was selling its ‘Courtyard Christmas Range’ of festive treats made by the staff and students. Seasonal goodies included sausage rolls, mince pies, preserves, chutneys and Christmas cakes. There was also a section selling crafts and pottery made by the charity, and an organised raffle and tombola.
Anesta Newson, CEO of The Bridge Project said, “Our Courtyard Christmas Range was hugely popular last year and we really look forward to welcoming people to come and start their Christmas shopping with us. Money raised will go directly into the charity, helping us to continue to support and provide training to our students”.
Over £550 was raised on the day and all proceeds have gone directly to The Bridge Project, supporting the work it does for the community and the running of the charity. Established in 1995, The Bridge Project assists disadvantaged adults in the local area. It seeks to help them maintain their well-being and independence, providing them with vocational training, education and employment opportunities.
The beginning of December has also seen The Bridge Project start its Christmas Lunches. The public can enjoy a two course Christmas Lunch for £8.50, everyday of the week until Friday 19th December.
