St Barnabas is marking a milestone anniversary and has presented an award to Lincolnshire Co-op as part of its celebrations.

The charity provides hospice services, care and support for people with life-limiting illnesses across Lincolnshire.  

It held a special event to commemorate its 35th birthday on Thursday 14th September, where awards were handed to just some of the dedicated staff who make its work possible.  

The event also thanked different organisations for their support of St Barnabas - including an award for Lincolnshire Co-op and its members.

The Corporate of the Year – Working Better Together award was presented to the Society on the night.

Together with its members and colleagues, Lincolnshire Co-op has supported St Barnabas in different ways through the years. 

Help recently came through through the Community Champions scheme, which supports local good causes.

During the health quarter from March to May this year, together colleagues and members raised funds for nine local hospice organisations including St Barnabas.

Donations were made every time members shopped in Lincolnshire Co-op outlets, along with fundraising by colleagues including a £10,000 pedometer challenge in May. The carrier bag levy went into the pot, too.

Colleagues from Head Office also walked 20 miles round Lincoln in May, stopping at 13 food stores who were all raising money for St Barnabas during the quarter. Lots of colleagues also took part in this year's 5k St Barnabas Colour Dash.

The efforts from members and colleagues during the health quarter meant £144,000 was raised in total for the nine local hospices being supported, including a share for St Barnabas.
