Sudbury Memory Tree pays tribute to lost loved ones over Christmas period in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care




A charity Christmas tree bearing messages in honour of lost loved ones will return to the heart of Sudbury, following its successful debut last year.

Members of the community are invited to acquire a memorial decoration on the Sudbury Memory Tree in Old Market Place, which will be displayed over the Christmas period, in return for a donation to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Teresa Elford, events co-ordinator at Sudbury Town Council, told the Free Press: “Last year, we raised nearly £800 for the hospice, and I am hoping we will reach that target again for 2020.”

Those who donate will also receive a St Nicholas Hospice certificate of recognition.
