Our History

With the support of a dedicated group of sponsors, fundraising for Lindsey Lodge Hospice began in 1987, there then followed five full years of planning, securing the land, then the building work ready for the official opening of our Day Care Unit by the Duchess of Norfolk in 1992. We are extremely grateful to our original sponsors and all those who continue to support us as we move forward into the future.

In 2000, we began a fundraising appeal for our Inpatient Unit and on 31 July 2002, Her Majesty the Queen and HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh visited us to formally open the unit and unveiled a plaque to mark the occasion.

Since then we've expanded and developed our services to include lymphoedema and breathlessness clinics and a whole range of complimentary therapies, along with bereavement and family support services.

In July 2017 we celebrated the mammoth milestone of providing 29 years of care. And, since the day we opened our doors for our first ever patient, we remain as focused as ever to delivering high quality, specialist palliative care to local people and their families living with life-limiting illnesses.
