OUR CHARITY OF THE YEAR 2013 - ST BARNABAS LINCOLNSHIRE HOSPICE
Each year we adopt a charity to whom we donate money to from the sale of medals and company fundraising projects.
We are pleased to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2013 is St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice who provide the people of Linconshire with high quality specialist palliative care and support.
Our reasons for choosing St Barnabas are two fold.We felt it would be appropriate to support a local charity to celebrate our 25 years and to say a big thank you for the kindness and support they showed to our amazing and inspirational friend Jules King who sadly died in St Barnabas in March of last year. In Jules’ own words:
“St Barnabas is a fantastic service and gives such wonderful care to me and my family. My biggest worry was how my family would cope after I am gone, but knowing that the hospice will be there for them is a massive weight off my shoulders. People need to know what a wonderful charity St Barnabas are and what great work they do”.
Throughout 2013 we will be donating 1p from the sale of every standard medal to St Barnabas Hospice. These will be indicated by a St Barnabas Hospice Donation lozenge and it is hoped that we will be able to make a significant contribution to help continue improve and extend St Barnabas Hospice services.
St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice has been providing care and support free of charge to people living with a life-limiting illness, their families and carers for over 3 decades.
We offer patients and their families Hospice care and support through a number of services:
• Our specialist 11 bed in-patient unit
• Community Hospice at Home Service
• Day Therapy and Outpatient Clinics
• Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Complementary Therapy
• Welfare Advice and Support
• Bereavement Support
Over the past 30 years the hospice has touched the lives of thousands of Lincolnshire families since it became one of the first in the UK to open its doors in 1982. Thanks to the generosity of the community, and the skills of its staff and volunteers, it has stayed at the national forefront of personalised and high quality patient care ever since.
All of our services are free but we need to raise over £3.1 million each year to continue the care and support we provide. All donations received and money raised as a result of Running Imp support will help to continue, improve and extend St Barnabas Hospice services.
