A community hub which offers a wide variety of services is celebrating being awarded £10,000 from the Big Lottery Fund.
Boston Lodge, based in Lowestoft, and owned by Ormiston Families provides a wide range of groups and activities including children's music and dance classes, cooking classes, writing groups, fitness classes and mental health support activities.
The £10,000 will keep the building running to a good standard helping pay for maintenance and upkeep of the interior and exterior of the building, as well as security and specialist equipment for its services.
Sharon Tejada-Jimenez, service manager for Boston Lodge, said: 'We are thrilled to receive £10,000 from the Big Lottery Fund – thank you so much.
'This means the world to our service users, who can continue to enjoy a safe and comfortable environment that benefits them.
