Lincolnshire’s St Barnabas Hospice is celebrating 35 years since the organisation began and fundraising groups have been doing their bit to mark the milestone.
In Ruskington on Monday last week volunteers at the hospice’s three charity shops on the High Street staged a tea party inviting customers to join them for tea, coffee, and birthday cake.
It was a civilised affair with musical accompaniment by violinist Steve Clarke, who is a local music teacher and busker in Covent Garden.
It is one of many events taking place to mark the anniversary year.
