On 5th May Councillor Tim Lockington wrote on this site about his concerns for local charities and what he personally was doing about it

On the 16th July we heard the shocking news that Age UK Suffolk is to cease operation.

Today Tim Holder, director of public affairs at the Suffolk Community Foundation, has warned many more charities across the county could collapse and Councillor Inga Lockington said she fears that this is at a time when more people need their services.

It is clear that action needs to be taken by the Government, local authorities and local people if these charities are to be saved. Please if you are in a position to help do so now before it is too late.
