The Australian outback comes to Bury St Edmunds

Suffolk Chamber of Commerce chief executive, John Dugmore, has agreed to be one of a group of high profiled Suffolk business people who will endure a series of trials in aid of St Nicholas Hospice, Bury St. Edmunds, on 27 October, in Suffolk’s very own ‘’Im a CEO…….. Get me out of here’’


Trials will include camp fire and accommodation building, the blindfold and touch trial ‘guess the animal trial’ and the infamous ‘bush tucker eating trial’.  News is not known regarding ‘dunny’ duty.


According to John “the caring services that St. Nicholas provide, and indeed all of the hospices in Suffolk, means that they are at the very heart of our communities. Both in a personal capacity, but also as a representative of Suffolk Chamber, I know that they are a vital element in making the county such a civilised place to live and work.”


“I know that many Suffolk businesses already support a wide range of charities, but I do hope that they might care to make a small donation to help me raise £2000 on the day for this great charity”


To release him from a day of strange and disturbing activities, John needs to raise £2000. You can make your donation via:


Don’t let John suffer – too much!
