To mark their 35th birthday, St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice are aiming to raise £100,000, to help fund more specialist nurses to care for terminally-ill adults across the county.

To be able to achieve this, the charity is challenging the local community to get involved in a ‘Do 35 for 35’ campaign, which is a list of fundraising ideas and sporty activities to take part in.

The campaign will take place for the whole of 2017 as they will be celebrating throughout the year.

Cat Maddy, Marketing and Communications manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice said: “The idea behind this campaign is that there are 35 challenges – one for every year the hospice has been open.

“There is something for everyone on the list whether it’s holding a bake sale, signing up to join our lottery, jumping out of a plane or volunteering at the hospice, we would love our supporters to help us celebrate our 35th birthday by getting involved with us.”

St Barnabas Hospice relies a lot on fundraising and involvement from the local community.

“It’s really important because this year we must raise £5.5 million in order to continue our care and services across the county, we want to ensure that we are here for 35 years and beyond. In fact, fundraised income pays for the care of 2 out of every 4 people we see,” Ms Maddy said.

A full list of the 35 challenges can be found on their website, but the charity is also encouraging people to come up with their own ideas.
