St. Nicholas' Hospice, Hardwick Lane, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk. IP33 2QY - Tel: 01284 715555


St. Nicholas' Hospice - serving West Suffolk and Thetford - is more than a building. It offers a whole approach to care, extending into a patientís own home and into local hospitals. The purpose is to help people facing a life-threatening illness, and their families, by improving the quality of their lives, and providing much needed support. The Hospice works alongside family doctors and community nurses in giving highly skilled care.


The Hospice provides:

  • A peaceful and relaxing in-patient unit.

  • An active day hospice with a wide range of therapies and activities.

  • A team of Macmillan nurses supporting patients and their families in their own homes and local hospitals.

  • A family support team of trained counsellors and visitors helping families and friends of all ages, both before and after the death of a loved one.

You may already know someone who has benefited from the work of the Hospice and thanks to voluntary donations the Hospice continues to offer special care without charge.

Open Gardens

Our Hospice has gone from strength to strength thanks to the support of the local people. The Hospice is a registered charity and provides all its services without charge. Everyone knows someone or of someone who has benefited from the embracing care and wonderful facilities at St. Nicholasí.


We need to raise over £6000 a day to continue our work and you can help maintain this vital level of service to the community. I am NOT asking you for money but if you have a garden perhaps you would consider my request. I am organising The Sudbury and Cornard Open Gardens are in aid of The Hospice. There are two separate events with a Spring Opening and a Summer Opening. Your garden doesnít have to be large and formal. Small can be just as beautiful and interesting. Visitors do not come to JUDGE your garden but to ENJOY and SHARE a mutual love of gardening.


Please do not hesitate to drop me a line or give me a call if you would be willing to open on one or both of these occasions. May I also take this opportunity to thank all who have so generously, previously supported our events.


For further information please write to 37 Waldingfield Road, Sudbury. CO10 2PU or 'phone me on (01787) 883064 or Email Sudbury Open Gardens.
