St Barnabas Hospice has been serving Lincolnshire for the past 31 years and cares for more than 5,600 patients and their families each year.

Care and support is offered through a number of services - an 11-bed in-patient unit; Community Hospice at Home; day therapy and outpatients clinics; physiotherapy, occupational and complementary therapies; welfare advise and support, and bereavement support.

All their services are free, but the charity needs to raise £3.1 million each year to continue the care and support it gives to families living with a life-limiting illness.

Market Rasen’s fundraising officer is Caroline Swindin, who has been organising a number of events in the area over the past few months.

And last weekend, she hosted another of the popular craft and gift fairs in the Festival Hall.

“We are grateful to the support people give to the hospice,” said Caroline.

“And we are always looking for more people to host events, whether a coffee morning, open garden or other fundraiser.”

The next event will be another of the strawberry cream tea afternoons in Market Rasen Library on Tuesday, July 2, from 2pm to 4pm.

And the next St Barnabas craft and gift fair will be in the Festival Hall on Saturday, November 23, from 10am to 2pm.

Anyone who would like to host an event in aid of St Barnabas can contact Caroline on 07435 970309, who will provide promotional support.

Caroline is also to happy to give talks to any group wanting to find out more about the work of the Hospice.
