The charity was established in 1948 to coincide with the birth of the National Health Service.
Originally our charity was funded solely through the contributions generously made by the local industry employees in Lincoln. At the end of every week these workers would donate one penny, in old money, from their wages towards patient care in hospital.
Unfortunately in recent years as the heavy industries began to relocate from Lincoln, contributions started to wane and as such our ability to aid the hospitals in Lincoln was threatened.
However thanks to the extraordinary efforts of our chairman, Mrs Fletcher, we are still able to continue with our work.
The Kiosk is situated at the Lincoln County Hospital within the entrance to the Outpatient’s Department on level three.
The Kiosk is solely manned completely by volunteers who sell newspapers, cold drinks, biscuits, confectionary and gifts.
Membership forms are available from the Kiosk and further advice about the association and membership is available from the volunteers.
In addition to remembering their loved ones, many people may wish to leave bequests to their favourite charities when making their wills.
This type of donation is one of the main ways people contribute. We fully respect the wishes of those who are generous enough to leave money to us and we will always invest wisely on their behalf.
