The team at St Barnabas Hospice are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Samantha Davis, wife of our patron, Warwick, and co-founder of dwarfism charity, Little People UK.

Samantha ‘Sammy’ and Warwick have become part of the St Barnabas family over the last seven years. Since opening our Grantham Hospice in the Hospital in 2017, they have been supporting our work in delivering free, high quality, compassionate end-of-life care and support to patients, families, and carers. Sammy supported Warwick with all his visits to St Barnabas, including our Ironwork appeals, HeART Trail and most recently an interview at our Inpatient Unit in Lincoln, where they met with patients and staff.

Dedicated to charity work, Sammy was a generous, passionate, and warm person who brought a smile wherever she went. She will be dearly missed, and we offer our heartfelt condolences to Warwick, their children and all the family at this difficult time.
