Hospice offers time to reflect with unique feather display at Aubourn Hall

The largest awareness and fundraising campaign being staged this year by St Barnabas Hospice is currently taking place at Aubourn Hall just south of Lincoln.

It’s a art installation called ‘Feathers from Above’, which displays 1,000 hand-made ironwork feathers, which the Hospice says represent a unique way to remember a loved one.

Says Caroline Swindin, Head of Fundraising and Lottery at the Hospice: “The spectacular display will be available for members of the public to visit during day displays or smaller evening displays.

“The bespoke and unique ironwork feathers have been designed, created, and displayed in support of St Barnabas and all money raised will provide more people in Lincolnshire with free, vital end of life care.”

The displays will run from now until 17th May, and are open for members of the public to visit and reflect during this period.

St Barnabas Hospice not only offers care in its own premises in Lincoln and Grantham, but also takes care ‘on the road’ through its Hospice at Home service. The hospice story began more than 40 years ago, when a group of people with just £270 formed a charitable trust with a view to developing a hospice. Three years later the trust had gathered enough money to buy a nursing home on Lindum Terrace at Lincoln, which opened as a four-bed unit.
