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:
Long Wyre Street
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.
