Remember your loved one with a forget me notDedicate here
The Forget Me Not display has concluded at Lincoln Castle, but there is still time to dedicate your own Forget Me Not to display at home. Simply make a donation for a beautiful, hand-crafted, iron Forget Me Not flower in memory of your loved one by clicking the ‘dedicate button’.
Remembering a loved one is very personal and the Forget Me Not appeal is a special way to celebrate the life of someone important to you. It is a wonderful tribute to their memory, and your donation to St Barnabas Hospice will enable us to support many more families in Lincolnshire. Our Forget Me Not flowers are designed and lovingly handmade in Lincolnshire at The Old Smithy blacksmith and are 18cm wide and 90cm long.
Throughout April 2019 the first 1,300 flowers were displayed in a Forget Me Not design at Lincoln Castle. Thousands of visitors enjoyed the display of iron, handmade Forget Me Not flowers on the grass banks of the Castle throughout Easter. This appeal is the first of its kind for St Barnabas, and has surpassed all our expectations raising over £90,000 so far for our Hospice.

I would like to invite you to dedicate your Forget Me Not in memory of someone special, like I have done for my Grandad. Every donation for a Forget Me Not will help raise much needed funds for more families like ours.
Thanks to the incredible care and support from St Barnabas, we became a family again rather than Grandad’s carers. This allowed us to make the most of our time together and create the treasured memories we have today.
