People are being invited to pop in for a cuppa and support The Great Brew Break to help raise vital funds for the WRVS in Suffolk.

Changes to legislation means that the organisation now has to become completely self funding.

The Women’s Royal Voluntary Service runs the meals on wheel service in the county supplying 5,642 people with meals in West Suffolk and 17,139 throughout the county.

The Great Brew Break invites people to go along to the offices in Chase Road, off Northern Way Industrial Estate and enjoy a cup of tea and cake.

The best performing WRVS group during the Brew Break will receive £5,000 in funding.

Caroline Parr, locality manager, said: “We want people to come along and help make this the best.”

As well as meals on wheels and community transport the organisation wants to create a new befriending service for elderly people.

The Brew Break is from April 29 to May 5 between 11am and 1pm.

A fun day is also to be staged on April 21.
