A café dedicated to helping people through bereavement is coming to Bury St Edmunds this October.

The Bereavement Café, which is run by St Nicholas Hospice Care, will hold weekly drop-in sessions for those coping with the loss of loved ones.

The sessions will run from 10am to midday at The Apex, in Charter Square, in Bury St Edmunds, on October 11 and act as a space for people to talk about the pain of loss and know they are not alone.

Bianca Neumann-May, St Nicholas Hospice Care family support practitioner, said: “Losing a loved one can turn your world upside down and make you feel lost.

“Talking about how you feel can help. Everyone experiences grief in a unique way. We want the Bereavement Café to be a place where people who have had similar experiences and share their stories.”
