Here at The Willow Festival, we are striving to help the local community where possible. Part of that is to work alongside a nominated Charity partner. For 2023 that charity will be
Sue Ryder. 

Sue Ryder supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that’s a terminal illness, the loss of a loved one or a neurological condition – They are there when it matters. 

Operating out of Thorpe Hall to the West of Peterborough, Sue Ryder has helped hundreds of people who have been affected by loss, and severe conditions. Their vision and goals are clearly set – To help even more people.
Not only do they have patients staying in their hospice, but they have also created a scheme to care at people’s homes too.
The work they do is amazing, and we are very proud to assist Sue Ryder where we can. Their representatives will be attending the Willow Festival this year, so come and talk to them and find our more about what they do.
They have plenty of information on their website

Vicky has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and is receiving care and support from Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

 Vicky also worked at Manorlands herself for 15 years. Here she tells of her experience as both a carer and being cared for at Sue Ryder.

Losing a loved one can be an incredibly lonely experience, and being in lockdown during the pandemic has made this even tougher for people who are coping with a bereavement. 

Our online bereavement support provides a space where you can find information, qualified counsellors and a community of others with similar experiences, to help you through your grief, even in these difficult times.
