A popular Sudbury pub will stage a casino night as part of its ongoing fundraising drive for a town charity.

The Prince of Wales pub last month pledged its support for the Just Talk Campaign – which offers support for people with emotional and mental health issues.

The pub’s six-month campaign will see it donate 5p from every drink sold during live televised sporting events following recent investment in a bid to become the town’s premier venue for live sport.

Duncan Tuhey, landlord, said: “We are delighted to announce the casino night as part of our continued support for the Just Talk Campaign, a cause we really believe in.

“We have already started raising money during the sports events and we are hoping the casino night will raise a significant amount of money. The last time we held a casino night we raised around £500 and we are hoping for a similar amount this time.

“We are looking for volunteer croupiers on the night so if anyone is able to help we ask them to kindly get in touch with us.”

The casino night is being held on Friday, March 30 (Good Friday) will consist of full-sized roulette black jack and poker tables.

For £5 players will be given £100 worth of chips to play with. There will be a £100 cash first prize, a £50 drinks voucher second prize and a bottle of prosecco third prize.

There will also be a special prize for the best dressed person, a free buffet and special offers on casino cocktails. The event will start at 8.30pm and no booking is required.

The Just Talk Campaign, which recently received official registered charitable status, was launched by leading psychotherapist Glenda Roberts in 2016 following a number of suicides in the Sudbury area.

Ms Roberts, who also runs the ExploringU Wellbeing Centre based in Sudbury, said: “We are so grateful to the Prince of Wales for its continued support and we hope many people come out and support the casino night.

“By working closely with community partners such as the Prince of Wales we hope we can reach out to and support many more local people.

“We believe everyone has the right to be heard and to have someone they can trust. We offer a safe and friendly environment where people of any age or background can come and talk freely about any issue they may have.”
