This year’s Christmas message from our CEO, Chris Wheway

25th December 2023

This December, I would like to say a big thank you to all of those who have supported us throughout the year and wish you a very, happy Christmas.

Thank you to the companies who have supported us with time and money, our staff, and our volunteers. Thank you also, to all the people who have been into our shops to donate and spend money with us. Without all of your support, we couldn’t continue to provide care to over 12,000 people and their families across Lincolnshire, every year.

This year has been an exciting one for the Hospice, including the celebration of our 40 years of service with our 40 Faces of Hospice Care, the HeART Trail, our biggest fundraiser to date, the launch of our Free Will Cafes and the restoration of our Wellbeing Centres.

As well as reflecting, we are also looking forward to next year and what we have to come, including our upcoming Ironworks display and Spring forward appeal.

Please remember to share a Christmas memory of your loved one this year through Much Loved, a new addition to ways we offer for you to organise a dedication to your loved one:

I know Christmas is a challenging time for many and a time where things like grief are amplified. I hope and pray that you all have a peaceful and blessed Christmas and thank you once again for your support.
