Free and simple ideas
Here you will find ways to organise a tribute in the name of your loved one, with additional options to support the Hospice with donations in their memory.
We have a number of options to choose from ranging from physical ironworks, digital tribute pages and events to attend.
Please be assured any money raised in memory of your loved one will support future Hospice care in Lincolnshire.
Remember a loved one with bespoke, handmade ironwork that can be displayed at home or outside in the garden.
A new ironwork will be launched in February 2024.
Much Loved tribute pages
This is your own special memorial website in tribute to your loved one, where you can share memories, thoughts and stories with family and friends as well as light candles, add music, photos and videos.
Light Up a Life
Our poignant Light up a Life appeal offers you a chance to dedicate a symbolic light in memory of your loved one. The dedication can be made via post, or online.
You will receive a handwritten card by one of our team, in dedication of your loved one and a tree decoration.
We have both digital and physical methods available for you to make holding a collection at loved one’s funeral simple.
Leaving a legacy in memory of a loved one is always a personal choice. Our legacies capture our values, our lives and experiences and our hopes for the future.
A gift in a Will is powerful way to support the Hospice, if we have made a positive impact to yours and your loved ones life. St Barnabas would simply not be able to offer, free end of life care without such gifts.
Fundraising for St Barnabas is another way of remembering a loved one with a focus on your own wellbeing and mental health.
Whether you choose to push yourself with a challenge activity or meet with friends for a Care for a Cuppa this can be another way of celebrating the life of your loved one.
At the Hospice and Wellbeing Centres
As you can see, St Barnabas offer a lots of ways for patients’ families to remember a loved one such as our online tribute pages, walking with us at the Torchlight Procession each Christmas and our Ironwork display. We also have reflection space available in our Inpatient Unit gardens and therapeutic outdoor space in our Wellbeing Centres, where families are welcome to use to reflect and remember loved ones.
However, we do discourage physical donations such as benches and sculptures due to the indirect costs, sustainability of the items and potential risk of damage, which could be upsetting to families.
