A support group which offers practical and emotional help to the families of those receiving end-of-life care has moved to a new location.

St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Open House session, which offers support to those receiving end-of-life care and their loved ones and also offers support for those coping with bereavement, has moved to the town’s Methodist Church in Tanner Street, Thetford. The frequency of the sessions, which have been running in Thetford for more than a year, have also increased to weekly and now take place every Wednesday, from 2pm to 4pm.

The charity will also be launching a new session at the Brandon Day Centre on Monday, February 27 which will run from 2pm to 4pm.

The session will then continue to run at the same time on the fourth Monday of every month.
