Boston Wellbeing Hub Break-in Statement

21st September 2021

We were saddened to hear that last night, two Gelder Group vehicles were stolen from our new Boston site on Endeavour Park. This site is currently under construction as we work to bring a brand-new Wellbeing Hub to the local community offering essential support to patients with an end of life, or life limiting diagnosis.

The site is now secured and we will install further measures to keep the building and contents safe. Unfortunately this will come at significant cost, which will add to the overall budget of the project. Thanks to the hard work of Lincolnshire Police, the vehicles were swiftly recovered in Newark and three people arrested.

Chris Wheway, Chief Executive Officer at St Barnabas Hospice said, “Having spoken to workers on site, this will delay vital groundworks to keep the project on track for opening in November, so we are extremely disappointed.

“We are grateful to Lincolnshire Police for locating the plant equipment so swiftly and are looking forward to being able to resume work at the site once it is feasible to do so.”

Last year, we cared for 1,232 patients in the Boston area. The Boston Wellbeing Hub will enable us to care for even more in the coming years, with a wider range of support available. It will be a new home for hospice care in South Lincolnshire, providing a safe and welcoming space for people to receive high-quality support and care from specialists.
