East of England Co-op Funeral Services is organising the free ‘Sing with the King’ event on November 22 from 2pm at St Peter’s Church.

The event will feature Elvis tribute singer Andrew Ottley, who will be joined by pupils from St Gregory CEVC Primary School and Tudor Church of England Primary School to provide backing vocals on a number of songs.

Organiser Lee Ritchie, funeral director at the East of England Co-op Sudbury branch on Cornard Road, said: “This is a cause close to my heart, as Dementia UK carers have provided invaluable support to my family and I, particularly my nana who benefited greatly from their care.”

Another familiar face from Sudbury attending the fundraiser will be Rev Cannon Cheryl Collins, who has assisted the team at the East of England Co-op Funeral Services Sudbury in promoting and organising the event.
