Last week we celebrated a fantastic donation of £500 that was presented to St Barnabas Hospice, to help us to secure the future care and support we provide throughout Lincolnshire.
Justin Hussey, a local Poet, made the extremely generous decision of donating the proceeds from the sale of his poetry collection, 100 Days and 9 Toes Later.
Justin wrote this collection of poems during a period of illness, and he decided to use the final publication to raise funds to help others, as well as giving himself something positive to focus on.
The cheque was very kindly donated to us by Justin’s Mum on behalf of Justin, and we would like to say a massive thank you once again for the generosity of this donation.
Twenty years of service! Thank you @npreheim along with many others coworkers who surprised me yesterday with my very own “Cathy’s Coffee Cart” beautiful flowers & a super sweet card. Some may question 20 years in one place? I can only say, I have found somewhere I like, and that likes me too. The other thought... you don’t need to go to a new employer to get new colleagues. If you stay put, they come to you! #workanniversary#healthcare#hospice#homehealth#workfriends
Today more than ever there is an acknowledgement of the gaps in generational ideology. The mindset must change to a sharing economy of knowledge and wisdom for the betterment of generations to come. Life is a human to human connection. Strive to learn from others different than yourself.
When you hold a fundraising event for Hospice Orillia, you are a third party fundraiser. Community fundraisers increase the public’s awareness of our various services and programs, promote community involvement, and raise much needed funds. Whatever your interest, whatever your idea, your dedication and support make all the difference.

Did you know there’s a World Hospice and Palliative Care Day? That’s on Oct 13th, so this month, let’s give more thought for and attention to this very important topic. 💡Here’s some food for thought: a Quality of Death study index listed the Philippines as one of the worst places to die (next to Iraq and Bangladesh) because of lack of quality palliative care services, palliative care professionals, public services and government support, as well as limited public understanding and awareness of palliative care services. 🌀Dr. Mae Corvera is on a mission to change that. She put up The Ruth Foundation for Palliative and Hospice Care in 2012 to make life better for those facing advanced illness and age. It’s named after her mother-in-law, Ruth Ciriaco Corvera, a community social worker, who inspired her and had gone through the same care before her death.
The Ruth Foundation provides community based opportunities for service in the care of the home bound elderly and those with life-limiting illness, along with education and training in Palliative and Hospice Care, for nurses, volunteers and other community-based health professionals. Through their care encounters or home visits, the Foundation brings dignity and hope to the doorstep of those who may not have easy access to quality medical care. As the Foundation says: though CURE may no longer be possible, CARE is.
This story really got me all emotional, especially witnessing Mae’s dedication, her gentle, loving touch with patients, and how her foundation’s work truly changes the lives of patients and their families. Learn more about Mae and The Ruth Foundation’s revolution of love tonight on @cnnphilippines Profiles. Replays on Thursday at 5:00pm, Friday at 8:30am, Saturday at 9:30am, Sunday at 12:00nn, and Tuesday at 9:30am. Live stream on cnnphilippines.com/videos.
Last month, a group of Matt Rhead super-fans named the Mattadores, handed over a cheque worth a fantastic £1,200 to St Barnabas. The group chipped in a pound every time Matt Rhead scored, had an assist or made any other valuable contribution last season. ⚽
The total raised was boosted by Matt Rhead and his family who donated an additional £200. Matt also gave a pair of signed football boots, a signed shirt and a programme from the Checkatrade Trophy Final signed by the entire Lincoln City FC team to be auctioned off.
We're hugely grateful to the Mattadores and to Matt Rhead and his family for this very generous donation and this very creative method of fundraising! Thank you so much.
Ladies Night at @mitre10nz Rotorua has been an absolute blast! We are halfway through the evening with raffles, special deals including GST free purchases, the stars of Rotorua Dancing With The Stars and the great Mitre 10 auction.
Thank you so much to all the women, and handful of gentlemen, who are so gracious and charitable.
This amazing 11 year old is in home hospice care (disease since birth)...I asked him if he was ever mad at God and he said, "why would anyone ever be mad at God...He is so amazing." Wow child-like faith. Please pray for Devon and his family.

Day 16 of #myjoyfulmourning - A verse or quote that gives you hope... [i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
BY E. E. CUMMINGS
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
I’m note sure when I came across this poem but I always liked it. When Félix got his diagnosis - HLHS, half a heart - I was reminded of it and it has taken on a new meaning. A line of it is on his urn, it a vers was on the church cards and it was the inspiration for my tattoo.
The poem helps me remember that Félix is with me, always. ❤️ October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. I am participating in the #myjoyfulmourning writing prompts to be a voice in a world that can feel incredibly lonely.
Swipe to see prompts for the entire month of October, use them to share your story and include the #myjoyfulmourning to point others towards hope in their grief if you want to join.
Friends and Animal Lovers! Shelter Chic is inviting you to participate in our BARK-TOBERFEST CHALLENGE! We are challenging ourselves and our supporters to get 131 people signed up for recurring monthly donations during the month of October to our organization through our website (http://shelterchic.org/donate/ or see link in bio). Even $5 per month is incredibly helpful to our team‘s rescue efforts. EVEN BETTER, if you sign up AND re-post this post, you can send us a photo of your pet(s) in their Halloween costume and we will share it! •
💰✨ Why do we need recurring donations? While we happily take in dogs and cats of all breeds, sizes, and ages, we have a soft spot for the senior animals and those in most need who often require more extensive vetting and medical care. Recurring monthly donations will allow us to continue taking the ones who need it most, including the very special dogs and cats we place in our hospice program Scrappy’s Bucket List 💙✨. We are a foster-based nonprofit rescue group run entirely by volunteers, and we are so grateful for your support 🐾💖 •

I have this fierce love and respect for hospice and always try to fight to end the stigma around it. This is just one service our hospice offered us. These are memory bears that they made from her clothing and customized based on what we told them. The two plain bears have some AWESOME eyebrows (anyone who knew Mum knew she went no where without her eyebrows on point) and they have angel wings cause she collected angels.
Hospice brings a sense of peace, comfort and calm during a really challenging time in life and depending on the hospice, work with you afterwards to make sure you are doing alright.
If you have a loved one that is either dying OR had an illness that can result in sudden death, hospice is amazing. There's no time limit; Mum was on it got two years.
SIX (!) months ago, this little lunatic joined our family. We didn't expect you to live six days nonetheless six months! In true Helfer fashion, he enjoyed an ice cream treat...while wearing his brand new sweatshirt.
Happy "adoptaversary," Tito! We love you so much!
As part of our efforts to achieve gold standard in the WorkWell program Kath has given all our Hinemoa Street staff a succulent to care for.
Research shows that plants positively affect peoples feelings of wellbeing. Can you add some greenery to your workspace today?
The Going with Grace End of Life Training launched yesterday!!!!! We’ve got a stellar crew of compassionate and conscious people committed to shifting how we die in this world and I’m SO EXCITED to be leading it (and scared as hell).
