A Suffolk Hospice is running a campaign to correct some of the myths surrounding hospice care.

Saint Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich currently looks after around 2,000 people each year with progressive and terminal illnesses.

Now they want to raise more awareness about the work they do and the services they provide.
