Let St Barnabas take the hassle of disposing of your real Christmas tree for a donation to the hospice. Their friendly team of elves will collect and dispose of your tree in the most environmentally responsible way. This winter their care will be supported by your kind Tree-Cycle donation. The process is simple:

  • Book your collection online on A list of postcodes on the collection route are listed online. Booking closes on 6th January.
  • Leave your tree outside your house on 9th January. It will be collected by 12th January by the Tree-Cycle elves.
  • Please make sure the tree is visible from the roadside. If they can’t see it, they won’t be able to collect it.
    Feel great. You have donated vital funds to St Barnabas and recycled too!

Take the stress out of Christmas by visiting The Waterside Shopping Centre in Lincoln from 13th to 21st December and St Barnabas will have lots of elves ready to wrap presents that you’ve bought for a donation.

At their last fundraising coffee morning at The George Henderson Lodge, Morton, Gainsborough they raised £234.10 — a fantastic amount on what was such a wet and dreary morning. It was lovely to see the hospice full of friendly faces. A big thank you to everyone who visited and the wonderful volunteers.

Caroline Swindin and Becca Hooton would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone for all their continued support and all the sponsorship for their China Trek. They had the most amazing, challenging and emotional time and raised in excess of £15,000 for St Barnabas. Amazing.

Last year St Barnabas Hospice cared for 1,822 patients over the winter (December, January and February). This is across their clinical services and they could not do this without the support of those in our communities. They send their sincere and heartfelt thanks to you all.
