This weekends Imps Rewind Lincolnshire Derby v Grimsby Town is being dedicated to St Barnabas Hospice to help raise their profile and valuable funds for the local charity.
During these unprecedented circumstances St Barnabas are still caring for people across Lincolnshire living with a life-limiting or terminal illness and supporting their families and carers too. Like many other businesses, they have faced huge losses due to the impact of cancelled events, activities and the closure of charity shops. You can help support St Barnabas Hospice by donating HERE.

St Barnabas have also just launched a free bereavment line this week. As thousands of people in Lincolnshire are isolated, dealing with the death of a loved one alone can affect the way we normally grieve, St Barnabas will offer a listening ear and basic advice to anyone who feels unable to cope or who needs to seek support.
This new bereavement helpline will be open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm, as well as Monday and Wednesday evenings until 8pm. Counsellors will provide a listening ear as well as hints and tips on how to stay calm or manage anxiety, and how to pay respects to a loved one when a funeral cannot take place in the usual way.
The helpline will support people who are grieving from a death of any cause, not just the coronavirus. People do not need to have used the St Barnabas services before to access this helpline.
This helpline is accessible only to the people of Lincolnshire due to capacity, and support can be accessed by dialling 0300 303 1897.
