Celebrate our birthday

It is our birthday on Friday 11th June 2021 and we invite YOU to #GoYellow and spread some sunshine to honour 39 years of compassionate, outstanding end-of-life care in Lincolnshire.

We have made a list of things for all ages to do, whether that’s dressing up in sunshine yellow, baking lots of yellow cakes or simply donating a few pounds through Facebook and using our #GoYellow profile frame to celebrate with us.

Last year, our birthday was during the first lockdown and we were overwhelmed by the support shown by you, our supporters, our corporate partners and landmarks around the county. We were even blessed with a drive past the Inpatient Unit from the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society members in tractors, combines, lorries and supercars – not to mention over 30 Post Office workers too!

This year, it might be a little more low key – as we plan for our BIG 40th birthday celebrations in 2022. We will still be raising a glass of fizz to honour a difficult year, that made us appreciate our families, friends and colleagues that little bit more.

Let us know how you will #GoYellow to celebrate with us by filling in the form at the bottom of this page!

Bake it

Nothing says “Happy Birthday” like a BIG Victoria sponge cake, which just so happens to be yellow. Click here for a fool proof recipe. It will taste just like the cakes our Catering team rustles up cake for patients and families to make sure their own birthdays are made extra special.

Why not make your walk themed for little ones? Dress them in yellow and search for Y-themed ‘treasures’ along the way. Yellow cars, flowers, trees, fruit and road signs. You could even join in with your neighbours and pre-plan a yellow pebble hunt, with a treasure chest of yellow sweeties at the end.

Window Dressing

The Hospice symbol is a yellow heart. Get crafty with chalks, paper and paints to decorate your window, garden or gate with heart designs.

We have a Go Yellow Facebook frame for you to use on the day, and invite you to show your support and donate £5 by texting SUNSHINE to 70145.
