FORMER Ipswich Town defender Fabian Wilnis returned to Suffolk to help launch a special community fund.

The Ipswich Town Community Trust's Changing Lives fund is used to fund bursaries as well as equipment and facilities for children and adults involved in sport.

Fabian, who spent ten years at the club and now plays for Grays Athletic, is vice patron of the Community Trust and kicked off the fund by donating �1,000 from the sales of his testimonial calendar.

He said: “I wanted to give something back to the town that has become my second home and supporting the community trust is the best way for me to do this.

Three people, Ben Saunders, Sam Nunn, and Zak Wood, who have all been helped by the trust's projects, were also at the launch yesterday, along with Ipswich Town chairman David Sheepshanks.
