Hobbies & Craft Day 2014

The 2014 open day was a little different to previous years. Instead it was incorporated into a Hobbies & Craft Day, which was organised by Sudbury Model Railway Club and took place at St. Peter's Church on Sunday 1st June.

The event was a success with £450 being raised for our three chosen charities through donations and sales of refreshments. The charities were East Anglian Children's Hospice, East Anglian Air Ambulance and Suffolk Family Carers, who will each receive £150.
