THE ‘WORDETTES’ were out this week collecting words from members of the public about what St Nicholas Hospice Care means to them.

During the first national Hospice Care Week, which ends today, the hospice, based in Bury St Edmunds, aimed to dispel myths about the services it provides.

On Wednesday, as part of the Hospice Care: Be surprised campaign, a team from the hospice asked people in Bury to write down their words and be photographed with them.

Hospice chief executive Barbara Gale said: “Many people think Suffolk hospices only provide end of life care and are often surprised when they find out we also care for people of varying age ranges in their own homes, in day care and through counselling and family support.”

The ‘wordettes’ also visited Newmarket, Haverhill and Sudbury.
