By supporting Sunflower Memories you are allowing our specialist staff to provide care for 1000’s of patients across Suffolk. These patients and their families are on a very difficult journey facing terminal illness. With your support we can provide help through therapy, symptom control and pain management.
Hospice support continues into bereavement, providing support through the grieving that follows when we lose those we love.
Every pound you pledge helps us care for local people when they need it the most and we can’t do it without you.
How your support will make a difference:
Your £20 donation will provide 1 hour of nursing care.
Your £35 donation will fund a counsellor to support a family for 1 hour.
Your £50 donation will fund 4 calls into our Onecall support phone line.

This year the hospice staff reacted swiftly to the coronavirus pandemic. An additional six beds have been created at the hospice, utilising the day service area in a separate an annex to the inpatient unit. Our community team have created a virtual ward for patients in the community who need a visits from one of our nurses as they may have complex needs or are at the end of their life. Other staff are maintaining contact with patients and families from a distance by offering wellbeing support over the phone. Our OneCall phone line really has been the life line for so many during this time giving people access to specialist hospice support 24/7.
Hopefully over the coming months we will be able to start making plans and once again our in memory events can be fully reinstated, we can then welcome you back to the hospice. In the meantime please keep safe and well.
