St Barnabas Hospice

Staff at St Barnabas are very excited about the launch of the new HeART Trail.

The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society (LAS) has partnered with St Barnabas for their biggest event of the year.

Schools across Lincolnshire have been letting their imaginations run wild, choosing how their own heart will look, what materials to use, and how they might paint or decorate it. The 20 school sculptures involved are now on display indoors at the Waterside Centre in Lincoln until mid-September.

William Farr School in Welton have been working so incredibly hard on their HeART. One half is a trail in the style of a map that illustrates Lincolnshire’s highlights, including their school. The other side incorporates the Lincolnshire flag and celebrates the school’s core values: Wisdom, Respect, Responsibility, Perseverance, Friendship and Compassion.

The school values echo the fantastic work that St Barnabas does for families across Lincolnshire.

27 large Hearts will be situated mainly in Lincoln but also going further afield out into the wider county. Maps can be purchased from Heart Hubs, which will be popping up while the trail is on, stating exactly where they all are.

St Barnabas is also looking for people to become a Hearty Volunteer for this summer’s biggest tourist attraction. The Trail is an inclusive, feel-good art trail that celebrates all the very best of Lincolnshire, in support of local Hospice care. The trail is perfect for the whole family to enjoy and make a day of.
