The Bennett Arms’ charity family fun day has got its bounce back thanks to a Bury St Edmunds company.

The Kingshall Street, Rougham, pub is holding a family fun day to raise money for Cancer Research on Saturday but its bouncy castle was stolen from the pub garden two weeks ago.

Managers Allison Clarke and Brendon Whitbread were worried that children expecting it to be there would be disappointed.

But Bury’s Castle Capers stepped in to provide an alternative.

Allison said: “They said we could have anything we wanted and they’re letting us use it for nothing.

“We’re really pleased, it’s a nice thing for them to do.

“We’ve had other people say we could borrow their family castles but we should have a lot of people here so we wanted something we could be sure was big enough.”

The event will also include a tug-of-war, live music, barbecue, ‘old school sports day’ races, welly wanging and a tombola.
