Each light on a Tree of Life represents someone special who will never be forgotten, and the lights have shone throughout November and December.

Jenny Peake, Individual Giving & Data Manager at St Barnabas Hospice, said: “We would like to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to those who donated to our Light up a Life campaign and dedicated a light in memory of someone they will never forget.

“£36,000 is an incredible amount of money for our hospice, and it will go a long way towards helping us care for more people across Lincolnshire living with a life-limiting or terminal illness, and their family and carers.

“The lights on our Trees of Life have shone brightly in memory of loved ones, and it is an honour to be able to help people remember them in such a special way.”
