Gardeners looking to raise cash for Hospice
Green-fingered residents of Bury St Edmunds are preparing to open up their gardens in aid of St Nicholas Hospice.
Lawson Place-based Coffee House has issued an appeal for people to take part in the Open Gardens of Moreton Hall event, which will take place on Sunday, June 26 between 10am and 4pm.
The event, organised by Lucy Newell and Jess Darnell, first took place on the estate in 2013 and has been a regular fixture in the calendar ever since.
For more information, either visit the Coffee House or call Lucy and Jess on 01284 700304.
Meanwhile, a volunteer at a Brandon charity shop is planning to host a fundraising garden party at her home.
Jean Bennett, who helps out at the St Nicholas Hospice Care shop on London Road, will be opening up her Weeting garden on June 26.
“As a volunteer at the Hospice shop I have learned of all the good work the Hospice does. There is so much going on behind the scenes,” said Jean.
“I have learned so much from my manager Saah Bilal and, after a little gentle persuasion, am delighted to hold a garden party to help raise money for the hospice.”
The garden party will be at 11 Glebe Road, in Weeting, between 2pm and 4pm.
