Do you know a Sudbury charity worthy of support and recognition?

To kick off the new year, St Gregory Primary School is seeking nominations of charitable organisations based in the town, as part of a whole-school project.

The pupils will then aim to support the chosen charities through various means, including donation collections, care packages, thank you cards and publicity via social media.

Headteacher Daniel Woodrow told Suffolk News that the students love helping other people and would really enjoy the project.

“We’re always looking to find ways to look outwards into our local community and give the children as many opportunities as possible to show gratitude and kindness towards people who help others,” he said.

“Last year, for Comic Relief, we made a video that thanked all of the key workers who had helped us during the pandemic. This year, we thought it would be nice to thank the people who give up their time to run charities and help others.

“We will also be asking the charities or the people who nominate them what they would like or would be useful, and we’ll try to do that.

“We want to reach as many people as possible, from charities that have a premises to online charities, to those organising collections for charities or making things to sell.”

Mr Woodrow confirmed that an online form is being produced for people to submit their nominations, with the aim of sending out donations and gifts to the charities in time for Comic Relief.
