Charity Cycle Ride
East of England Co-op Funeral Services
A team of 6 colleagues are taking on a cycling challenge on 18th September 2018, raising funds for Colchester Hospital Time Garden. They will journey between the following branches:
Long Wyre Street
The ride will be finishing 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.
