Forever in our Hearts display at Lincoln Cathedral

Unfortunately, the Forever in our Hearts display at Lincoln Cathedral ended on 18th April. The display saw over 1,200 hearts dedicated in memory of loved ones on display in the Dean’s Green at Lincoln cathedral.

We are still taking heart orders but due to them being handmade, they won’t be available for collection beginning in June.

Lights at Night

Thank you to all those who joined us for our special Forever in our Hearts: Lights at Night, which ran on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd April.

Over the 3 nights we saw hundreds of supporters visit the twilight event. It was truly captivating and emotional being able to see over 1200 hearts illuminated, a beautiful tribute to those loved ones being remembered.

We are please to announced ticket sales and donations on the night have helped to raise a further £5409.81 towards the Forever in our Hearts Appeal.

 

Emma’s Story

“My ironwork heart will stand proudly in the garden so that a part of Dad is here with me always.

“My dad, Geoffrey, had such a cheeky personality; always joking and making us smile. He was diagnosed with cancer on 16th March 2016, and from then we only had a couple of weeks before he died and our world fell apart.

“I felt so lost at the time. I was 28, but it was as though I had reverted back to being a child, just trying to tell myself that it was all a bad dream.

“Our saving grace during this horrible period was St Barnabas Hospice. The dignity and care they showed my dad was like nothing I had ever imagined. From the moment our family walked in, we felt they were caring not only for dad, but for us too.

“My brother and I struggled to process our feelings alongside making sure Mum was ok, but the nurses took over and gave us stability when everything was falling apart. I don’t think people realise just how special the team at St Barnabas are.

“Everyone at St Barnabas has so much love to give to families and patients, which is what makes this heart display feel so special to me. The suggested donation for a heart is £35.54, this is the equivalent to one hour of specialist inpatient care, just like Dad received.”
