St Nicholas Hospice 10k runners race through Bury St Edmunds





Hundreds of runners raced their way to the finish line in a hospice charity’s first ever 10k event.

The St Nicholas Hospice Care 10k Run took place yesterday and saw participants run a circular route in Bury St Edmunds from Angel Hill, through the Abbey Gardens and towards Moreton Hall.

The race was sponsored by property company Jaynic and raised vital funds to support the charity’s mission to provide specialist palliative care and practical support to those in West Suffolk and Thetford.
