A young Bury St Edmunds charity now has good reason to be proud of its name – thanks to a donation from a local fund-raiser.

The Bury district of the Deaf & Hard of Hearing Association formed last year, after parting from the Suffolk Deaf Association. Up until last month, the sign outside the group’s Northgate Street centre continued to display its old name.

Now, fresh paint and lettering – partly paid for by funds from Mike Burton’s recycling of aluminium cans – have given the sign a new look, and its group a new identity. Treasurer Jane Frost said: “We’re very pleased to have our new sign and very proud of it. Mike’s donation was a great help because we would have had to find the money from somewhere.”

To contact the group, which currently has around 50 members, call 01284 361216.
