The founders of a successful charity in Sudbury have been honoured with a commemorative plaque.
The Bridge Project was set up in 1994 to support disadvantaged adults and became a registered charity in 1995.
Founders Ken and Anesta Newson built the project into a key organisation in Sudbury which works with adults who have dementia, learning disabilities and mental health problems.
On Friday, September 29 the plaque was unveiled in the town’s Gainsborough Street where trustees, staff, volunteers, family and friends were on hand to pay tribute to the work of former chief executive Anesta and Ken, who has recently stepped down from his trustee role.
Mrs Newson said: “The Bridge Project has really enriched the lives of the people involved, and has become an integral part of the local community.
