Charity's community work in Haverhill is celebrated
A celebration of St Nicholas Hospice Care's services and support in Haverhill took place recently.
The event took place at its Camps Road hub and marked a year since the charity brought more of its services under one roof.
Jessica Gunn, St Nicholas Hospice Care’s hub shop manager, said: “As well as being able to celebrate the coming together of our clinical services, café and shop, it was an important chance for us to raise further awareness about the charity and the help and support we are able to offer people across Haverhill.
“We are so grateful to everyone who helped to make the day possible.
"Our volunteers and staff from across the hub’s three areas who gave up their time to join us at the event, Fiscale Ltd for sponsoring the occasion and the many local businesses who donated prizes for our raffle. We hope to continue welcoming the community into the hub.”
The day gave visitors the chance to find out more about the many services and support groups run out of the building, including its Open House session every Tuesday from 10am to midday and the fortnightly Women’s Group.
The day also which featured a variety of entertainments, included treasure hunts, face painting, a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and a guess the weight of the cake competition.
Haverhill's deputy mayor John Burns cut the celebration cake and drew the raffle’s winning tickets.
