Forty diners in Cockfield were able to raise more then £650 to be split between the Mayor of St Edmundsbury’s four adopted local charities.

An informal fund-raising meal and raffle proved a huge success at the Horseshoes Inn in Cockfield on Saturday - raising a total of £657 towards helping: The East Anglian Children’s Hospices, West Suffolk Hospital’s Rainbow Ward, Bury Women’s Refuge and the St Edmund’s branch of Samaritans.

Diners represented Bury and eight surrounding villages from all walks of life, with the Mayor, Councillor Patrick Chung, delighted with the amount raised.

The evening was organised by Bradfield Combust with Stanningfield Parish Councillor Andy Tucker, who wished to thank everyone who came and the Horseshoes Inn for hosting it.

“I am truly grateful to so many good and like-minded friends for their wholehearted support of the event, and to Jessica, Lloyd and staff of the Horseshoes Inn for being such fantastic hosts,” he said.
