Independent Suffolk charity St Elizabeth Hospice has announced it will be opening its Tall Orders café on Friday 2nd July.
Following the success of its Heath Road Coffee Shop in Ipswich, which opened its doors in March 2019, the hospice will be opening the new café in Stowmarket to strengthen its bond with the community.
As well as to generate further funds to support its services, which every year care for over 3,000 patients and their families throughout east Suffolk, Great Yarmouth and Waveney.
Located on Bury Street, in Stowmarket next to the hospice’s retail shop, Tall Orders will be open Monday to Saturday between 8.30am-3.30pm, serving a range of hot drinks, cakes, bakes, sandwiches and salads, as well as the famous Tall Orders’ scones.
All proceeds from the café will go towards the hospice, helping it to continue delivering free care across the region to patients and families living with progressive and life-limiting illness.
These vital services cost £12.9m to facilitate every year, with the independent charity raising 70% of these funds via revenue streams such as retail shops, donations, fundraising activities and coffee shops, such as Tall Orders.
Andrea Wedgwood, Retail Area Manager at St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “We are so pleased to be opening Tall Orders in Stowmarket and look forward to welcoming the local community for a hot drink and cake.
“The work of the hospice is at the heart of the community and much like our Heath Road Coffee Shop we are keen for Tall Orders to help us engage further with the community as well as offer opportunities for people to get involved and support the hospice.
“It will be a real community space and we are keen to hear from anyone who would like to join our team and volunteer at Tall Orders.”
