St Nicholas Hospice Care calls for more gardeners to join its Hidden Gardens event




Organisers of this year's Hidden Gardens event are hoping more people will sign up to open their gates and showcase their gardens to the public.

Last year's fund-raiser generated a massive £19,668.89 for St Nicholas Hospice Care, which looks after people with life limiting and terminal illness.

More than 30 gardens were opened to offer a glimpse of their owners' green fingered expertise featuring gardens of all shapes and sizes.

It is hoped this year's event on Sunday June 21 will again be well supported and more people will join in for the 34th year.

Miranda McCoy, hospice community fund-raiser, said: "We are very lucky to have a varied Hidden Gardens programme that showcases a wealth of different gardens across the town, but we know there are lots of unseen gems yet to be discovered.

"We are keen to welcome new gardens to join us as this event continues to blossom and it remains a firm favourite with all our lovely supporters."

For more information on how to become involved contact Miranda at miranda.mccoy@stnh.org.uk or telephone 01284 7155667.

The charity has to raise £11,000 daily from the local community to continue to provide its vital support in west Suffolk and Thetford.

As well as its hospice in Bury St Edmunds there is a community hospice team helping people in their own homes and the Nicky's Way programme which supports bereaved children and young people.
