Upbeat, which is based in Bury St Edmunds and Long Melford, held the lunch at Stoke-by-Nayland Golf Club and 140 members attended.

As well as delivering a talk to members, Mr Murphy also presented a High Sheriff’s Award to charity chairman Sylvia Baker for her work with Upbeat.

Mr Murphy, who presents the weekday breakfast show as well as ‘Life’s a Pitch’ programme prior to Ipswich Town games, said: “What a great welcome I received from all the members who are clearly passionate about being part of Upbeat.

“I now know where to go if I need some help in the future.”
