St Andrew’s Hospice

St Andrew's Hospice January and February 2016.

Hospice Therapeutic Activities Assistant Sarah who worked with us on the Threads project commented: ‘St Andrew's Hospice is thrilled to be part of the ‘Threads of the Past' project and to be the first organisation to benefit from working with Lincs Inspire and a professional artist.

We often work with patients to reflect, reminisce and share their treasured memories, but to take this further and see patients' life stories made into works of art to exhibit and treasure is both inspiring and exciting. Patients will be enabled to think deeply about the stories they want to share and with the support of volunteers bring their ideas to life, after which family and friends who visit the exhibition will be able to explore and ask questions about the artworks. From the conversations that inspire the creation of art to those around the finished pieces, the project will open up dialogue and memories from start to finish - and beyond.'
