Lincolnshire hospice raises £36,000 in memory of loved ones

Families across Lincolnshire have joined together to raise £36,000 and remember someone they will never forget this winter

People across Lincolnshire have raised a spectacular £36,000 for St Barnabas Hospice, by donating money for a light on one of many Trees of Life across the county.

Each light on a Tree of Life represents someone special who will never be forgotten, and the lights have shone brightly throughout November and December – a time of year which can be difficult for many.

Jenny Peake, Individual Giving & Data Manager at St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“We would like to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to those who donated to our Light up a Life campaign and dedicated a light in memory of someone they will never forget. £36,000 is an incredible amount of money for our Hospice, and it will go a long way towards helping us care for more people across Lincolnshire living with a life-limiting or terminal illness, and their family and carers.

“The lights on our Trees of Life have shone brightly in memory of loved ones, and it is an honour to be able to help people remember them in such a special way.”
