As autumn approaches and the countryside is transformed into a copper-tinged wonderland, we’re excited to be heading into rural Suffolk to bring creativity and company to older people in Mid-Suffolk and Babergh’s rural towns and villages.
Rather than having hibernation on our minds, we’re gearing up for a busy autumn after receiving the wonderful news of a grant from Children in Need for our Clown Round project.
And if getting active in autumn is up your street, then why not consider applying for one of our free places for the Adnams 10k run this November?
Wishing you a fruitful season!
Alex & Hayley, Co-Directors

Double celebration for Clown Round

Adnams Southwold 10k charity places
The Adnams Southwold 10k run has now sold out, but the lovely people at Adnams have kindly given us 5 free places to the event. So if you are up for raising a minimum of £200 for Suffolk Artlink, you could still join your fellow runners on Sunday 18 November for the 10k course which takes a circular route around Southwold in all of its autumnal glory.
