More volunteers are needed to give a new lease of life to the gardens at St Nicholas Hospice Care in Bury St Edmunds.

The work will see the current gardens replaced at the front and rear of the hospice.

At present Chris Wiley is acting as project co-ordinator but he needs many more people and campanies to help him, particular by donating items for the gardens.

He is involved in the work in memory of his grandfather John Wiley.

His company, Harvey’s Garden Plants, at Thurston, has already said it will give plants to help restock the gardens. Now Mr Wiley is appealing for more companies to help.

Ron Curry, facilities and maintenance manager at St Nicholas Hospice Care, said: “We are very grateful to Chris and the Harvey’s Garden Plants team for their kind offer to revamp our garden areas. It will make a big difference, because it will completely change our raised beds and car park. Patients and families always comment on how beautiful our gardens are, and it can make a big difference when you are not feeling 100 per cent.”
