The Winners of the St Barnabas HeART Trail Staff & Volunteers competition are revealed

7th September 2023

A Group of people, two women and two men, stood in a Garden in sunny weather. One of the women are holding up the winner of the competition's entry.

During the duration of the HeART Trail, St Barnabas staff and volunteers were invited to create and submit anything ‘heart’ related as part of our HeART Trail celebrations. ​​​​​​​ 

The entries, of which we received many, were judge by: Caroline Swindin, Head of Fundraising & Lottery; Steve Bond, Head of Volunteering Services; Ollie Williamson, Employee Experience Team Leader; Lisa Simpson, Director of People and Education; and Amelia Chambers, Head of Marketing Communications & Digital.

The quality of the submissions were exceptionally high, which made judging all the more enjoyable. The winners are:

  • 1st place, Minnie from Marketing with her handmade slate and glass hearts. ​​​​​
  • 2nd place, Debbie from Finance with her sewn HeARTs made from recycled fabrics from our own Charity Shops.
  • Joint 3rd place, is Rebecca, Director of Patient Care, with her heart picture and Katy, from Welfare and Benefits, with her stain glass biscuits.
  • 1st place, Volunteer winners are Mandy and Ron Morris for their glass artwork.

The Judges have passed on their congratulations to all of the winners, and their thanks for those who took part.

The competition was held to celebrate the HeART Trail, and engage with the members of staff and volunteers. The HeART Trail ran throughout the summer of 2023, and saw 30 HeART shaped sculptures adorn the streets on Lincolnshire. To find out more about the Trail, go to:
