Lincolnshire NHS Charity is an independent and dedicated charity that plays a vital role in supporting both LPFT and Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust to make a difference to service user care.

The charity funds innovative projects to enhance services and facilities that would otherwise not be funded by the NHS. 

Examples of what the money raised went towards are:

  • ECG machines for adult community services.
  • Portable electrocardiographs for use by community teams.
  • Hiring a large venue for a learning disabilities event.

The charity raises its money in many ways; staff and patients often run various sponsored events, including cake sales, balls and other activities. Plus generous donations from patients and their families are very gratefully received. Every penny counts, and is spent as wisely as possible to ensure funds go to help local people and our patients. 

Whilst the charity’s legal trustee is Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, its activity is governed by a highly qualified board of trustees and advisors with representation from both NHS trusts. Its vision is to promote excellence in healthcare by raising and investing funds to improve the healthcare environment.

Charitable Funds is registered with the Charity Commission and its registration number: 1055217

Langworth Ward Flower Appeal

The Langworth Ward at Witham Court provides specialist acute inpatient care for older adults with needs that are too complex to be safely managed within the community. Patients admitted to the ward can have complex needs as a result of dementia and mental health difficulties. In the past, the patients have participated in activities such as gardening and basic 'do it yourself' tasks. However as care in the community has expanded, the patients in the care of the ward have increasingly complex needs and are unable to undertake these tasks without causing damage to the flowers.

The Lincolnshire NHS Charity is working with the activity coodinators at Langworth Ward to remedy this problem by launching the Langworth Ward Flower Appeal. We are asking for your help to make some knitted or crocheted flower heads which can be attached to a stem by the activity coordinators and 'planted' in the flower pots in the courtyard at Witham Court. These flowers can be of any size, shape or colour. This will enable the patients to participate in gardening tasks such as planting flowers and weeding without damaging the plants themselves. It will also ensure that the courtyard area of the ward is colourful and pretty all year round.

Here's some links to crochet patterns we found online to get you started:
