Ipswich Town Football Club’s managing director Ian Milne and actress Helen Fraser cut the ribbon at the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) store in Meredith Road yesterday morning, declaring the outlet officially open.

The new shop is due to be a sister store to EACH’s outlet in Felixstowe Road, and will become the second outlet in the town.

Shop manager Helen Woiwod said: “We’re delighted to have officially opened our doors this morning.

“This is our second shop in Ipswich and the till has been ringing since we opened. We’ve had such great support since announcing our plans to move here and we’re confident the local community will be behind us.

“It was fantastic to have 
Ian Milne and Helen here to cut the ribbon – and I’d like to thank them both for giving up their valuable time to show us support.”
