A King’s Lynn charity supporting members of the military is in danger of closing its doors.

It is the second time in less than 12 months that Bridge for Heroes has faced the prospect of shutting for good.

Chief executive Mike Taylor is desperately trying to raise funds and only has enough to last until October 1.

The charity needs an immediate £5,000 cash injection to keep its contact centre in South Clough Lane and a museum in the Millfleet open and running. Another £32,000 is needed to see the charity stay open until April.

“As a charity we help people that have suicidal thoughts, those that struggle with readjustment, depression or who need emotional support,” said Mr Taylor.

Bridge for Heroes has around 25 volunteers helping to run 350 support sessions a month in Lynn. Mr Taylor said the charity had helped around 800 people in the last two years.

“We only have enough to keep going until October but there is still time, we just need the public’s help. Our service is not just life-changing, it can be life-saving,” he said.

The charity was founded in 2010 and opened a contact centre, near the multi-storey car park, in Lynn in 2011.

Last year saw the official opening of its Military Experience Day Centre on Lynn’s Millfleet.

The former head of the army, General The Lord Richard Dannatt cut the ribbon to officially launch the new project.

Volunteers helped to transform part of the former Millfleet club into a museum and display area for the charity.

The team will be collecting donations at Sainsbury’s store on Hardwick Road on Sunday and Monday with a charity bagpack.
