Fundraise for St Barnabas Hospice


St Barnabas Hospice

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is a local, highly regarded charity that touches the lives of many across Lincolnshire. We provide specialist care and support from the point of diagnosis, including end of life care to adults living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.

Our dedicated, professionally trained nursing staff, along with the help of a large team of support staff and volunteers offers everyone in our community the chance to receive the very best care available. Our hospice services are available to every family in Lincolnshire, wherever they are, there’s a St Barnabas nursing team working in your area, supporting people in your community.

The reality is none of us know when we may need the care and support our Hospice offers. In 2019 we cared and supported over 10,500 people across the county living with a terminal or life-limiting illness. Our diverse range of care is free to patients and their families and carers. To do this, it costs over £12 million each year, of which we must raise over £6 million.
This income is raised through our innovative and diverse range of Fundraising events, appeals and activity as well as our 26 retail shops and Lottery team. In addition to our own Hospice events the support of individuals, groups and businesses in our local communities is invaluable to us.

Your support, no matter how big or small will make a difference.
