A Sudbury facility which provides specialist care and education to young people with a range of learning needs and challenging behaviours has chosen its charity for the year.

Students at Ryes College have voted to support Help for Heroes and set themselves a target to raise £1,000.

Last month they raised £270 on a market stall they set up in Sudbury.

Stephanie Jones, headteacher, said she is very proud that the students have made this commitment to help other who have suffered.

The students are planning further fundraisers this year, including a sponsored assault course and other market stalls.
