Christmas Charity Events

This year, perhaps more than in recent years, many people will be struggling with higher food prices, as well as escalating energy and other bills.

While there are charities set up to help the disadvantaged they, too, will be finding it harder to raise funds.
There are a number of charity events planned for the run-up to Christmas that you may wish to help:

The Bury St Edmunds Womens’ Aid Centre is holding an open day, White Ribbon Day, at its premises at 24 Saint Andrew's Street North from 11am to 3.30pm on 25 November. You can hear more about their work as well as making a pledge to the campaign.

A festive Carol Service also in Bury St Edmunds at the Cathedral will be in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service. It’s on December 6 starting at 6.30pm.

A business networking event in Ipswich at Paddy and Scott’s, Ambition House, from 2.30pm on December 1 will publicise the work of the Ormiston Family Trust.

The Christmas Craft Fair, at Kersey Mill, near Hadleigh, will raise money for the Hadleigh Food Bank. It is on Saturday 27th November 2021 from 10am -4pm.

The Christmas Market at Trinity Park, Ipswich, on Saturday 4th December is being held in aid of the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity. There will be approximately 70 stalls to browse through for food, drink and gifts so you can kill two birds with one stone.

Also, there are always plenty of drop off points for food donations in most of the local supermarkets that support various local food banks.
