More than £500 has been raised in donations towards the upkeep of a local woodland retreat.
Since it opened in 2007, Eden-Rose Coppice Trust in Quay Lane, Sudbury, has helped more than 150 people living with life-threatening illness. Rob Brooks, the founder of the trust, said the Sudbury branch of Specsavers had just crossed the £500 mark through donations made in a ‘penny pot’ collecting tin in the Market Hill store – £150 this month alone.
He said: “It’s nice to think that companies like Specsavers choose to support local charities like Eden-Rose Coppice instead of donating to the bigger national charities. Their help is greatly needed and much-appreciated.”
Any local companies who would like to support the trust by keeping a collecting tin on their premises can call Rob Brooks on 07811 111788.
