Grantham Wellbeing Centre Break-in

21st June 2023

In the early hours of this morning Wednesday 21st June, there was an attempted break-in at our Grantham Wellbeing Centre.

The perpetrators didn’t manage to get in but have removed one of our CCTV cameras and caused damage to the roof.

Today police and St Barnabas staff are on site inspecting the damage.  The police have taken evidence from the site to support with their investigation.

Currently the Centre is temporarily closed so we may carry out essential external maintenance and improve facilities for the many people who use the Centre as a haven, socialising and accessing medical care and support. St Barnabas supports patients throughout the Grantham area by offering services in the Centre, in the Hospice in the Hospital and in people’s own homes.

We are deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence, which is hugely upsetting to the staff, volunteers, patients, and families who use the building. It will be costly for us to repair, taking away vital funds for care.

We are asking people to come forward with any information. Please contact the Lincolnshire Police through their website or by calling 101, with the incident number 80 210623.
