Pumpkin fun for the family this October.

An event for young children and their families, Pumpkin Parade features a 1km pumpkin-themed route around the Hospice’s Bury St Edmunds grounds.

Be sponsored, if you wish, to complete the bright and colourful challenge. The route will be lined with pumpkins, and children are welcome to dress up in pumpkin-themed outfits.

The price of £5 includes one child admission, medal and sweets. All proceeds go to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Crafts and activities will also be available on the day.

Online booking is essential and closes at 9am, Thursday 24 October.
