The nights are drawing in, there is a definite chill in the air and we turn the clocks back at the end of October. So, it can only mean one thing — it will not be long until Christmas! The St Barnabas Hospice Light Up A Life church celebration is Tuesday 3rd December, at 6.30pm at United Reformed Church, Church Street, Gainsborough DN21 2JR. Dedicate your light at www.stbarnabashospice.co.uk/lual.
Another date for the diary is our Fundraising Coffee Morning at The George Henderson Lodge, Morton, Gainsborough. We will be serving teas, coffees and a selection of cakes. There will also be a raffle and tombola. Please pop along, it will be wonderful to see you all.
By the time you read this Caroline and I will have trekked the Great Wall of China and will have returned in one piece (hopefully)! If anyone would like to donate, our JustGiving link is www.justgiving.com/fundraising/becca-caroline.
Last year St Barnabas cared and supported over 10,500 people. This is delivered free of charge to the patient, their family and carers but to do so will this year cost us £11.5 million, of which we must raise over £5.5 million; we could not do this without the support of those in our communities; our sincere and heartfelt thanks to you all.
I look forward to working with you all in the future.
