St Barnabas Hospice

St Barnabas Hospice would like to introduce its latest In Memory appeal – Feathers from Above.

At St Barnabas they recognise the importance for those in local Lincolnshire communities (not just those touched by Hospice care) to remember their loved ones. Every two years they present an ironwork campaign, which consists of a bespoke, handmade ironwork that can be displayed at home, or outside in the garden.

Previous In Memory campaigns include the Forget-Me-Nots at Lincoln Castle, Dragonflies at Doddington Hall, and Forever in Our Hearts at the Deans Green, Lincoln Cathedral.

This year the Hospice is proud to be working with local artist Kevin Baumber, who has designed and created an incredible feather ironwork.

Feathers from Above will be presented in the beautiful surroundings of Aubourn Hall, Gardens and Grounds, near Lincoln, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 19th May, 10.00am to 4.00pm. This will include 1,000 feather ironworks forming a stunning interactive display of art. It offers a wonderful day out to enjoy the grounds at times that are not usually open to the public.

In addition to the day experiences, on the evenings of Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd May, the Hospice will be hosting special opportunities of reflection. This will consist of, ambient music, a live saxophonist, welcome refreshments, and a display of supporters’ dedications.

A feather ironwork is available to purchase for £40.00, which includes an engraved tag of your loved one for you to keep forever.
