East of England Co-op Funeral Services

A team of 6 colleagues took on a cycling challenge on 18th September 2018, raising funds for Colchester Hospital Time Garden. They journyed between the following branches:

West Mersea
Prettygate
Stanway
W.H Shephard
Long Wyre Street
Wimpole Road
Greenstead
Manningtree

The ride finished at Colchester General Hospital.

The fundraising appeal

Dying patients often express the wish to spend time outside with people who are special to them – it is hoped the Time Garden will enable them to fulfil this wish in the last days of life.

  • £1,000 will help to pay for bi-fold doors to enable the pavilion to be used in all weathers.
  • £500 will provide comfortable seating in the pavilion for patients and their loved ones.
  • £100 will help to provide refreshments for patients using the garden.
  • £50 will enable them to buy gardening tools for volunteer gardeners.

The team hope to raise £2,500 to support this appeal.

This September, six of our funeral team took part in a 33 mile cycle challenge to raise funds for the Time Garden at Colchester General Hospital.

A peaceful and quiet place for patients coming to end of life to spend time alone or with their families, our team raised an incredible £1,300 to help towards the gardens development (and counting!)

Want to help us reach our target?

We're hoping to raise £2,500 to support theTime Garden fundraising appeal that CoHoc are currently running.
