A new home for Hospice Care in South Lincolnshire
I’m Sheena Ambler and I am the Senior Clinical Services Manager for St Barnabas Hospice. For the last ten years I have been very proud to lead a team of brilliant specialist palliative care nurses and volunteers in South Lincolnshire.
Before the pandemic, our home was an aging bungalow in Boston. It was much loved – but over the years became increasingly ‘run down’ and didn’t offer the environment we needed for staff or patients. So, it was amazing to learn in 2019 that a local philanthropist, Stefan Novak, had left a large legacy gift to St Barnabas. His gift made it possible for us to design a new base offering the flexible space our patients need.
But we are not there yet – and we need your help. Stefan’s legacy paid for just under half the cost of the new Wellbeing Hub. We’ve raised another quarter from fundraising over the last year but, as I’m sure you appreciate, the pandemic has seriously affected our ability to bring in all the money we need.
Any gift you could manage today will help to bring in the total we need to complete the build. Thank you, from the whole team for your support.
