As 2022 comes to a close, I want to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported St Barnabas Hospice this year.

We appreciate every person and business who has been able to make a financial donation or fundraised for us, everyone who has participated in our events, every purchase made or item donated in our shops, every volunteer who gives their time to us, every gift given in kind, and every person who shares their experience with St Barnabas to help us spread awareness of the good work we do.

We know this year has been challenging for many, we are honoured to have your support and we are humbled by the kindness and generosity of the Lincolnshire community.

It’s been an exciting year for us, with the opening of our flagship charity shop The Warehouse in Lincoln and Boston’s Novak House, the re-launch of the Louth Wellbeing Centre and the incredible renovation of the Inpatient Unit in Lincoln. We also have seen some fantastic events including our fun Colour Dash, the poignant Torchlight Procession and many more.

The holiday season can be a difficult time of year for those who are experiencing grief, please don’t forget our services also include bereavement support for those who need it. This free support is available to everyone in Lincolnshire, not just those affected by hospice care.

On behalf of the entire St Barnabas Hospice team, I want to wish you a peaceful, happy Christmas, and thank you for your continued support.
