Our dear friend, lifelong Lincoln City fan Tim Smith was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer last summer. Tim sadly passed away shortly after his beloved Imps gained promotion as League 2 Champions.
St Barnabas Hospice, a local charity, organised a day out for him with manager Danny Cowley and the players at Sincil Bank last September when the club played MK Dons. Tim led the team out and had an amazing day. In his words "I was like a kid in a sweet shop".
Tim and his family kindly invited his friends to join him after the game in the VIP lounge. We all had such a memorable time together and simply asked Tim if there was anything he needed or if there was anything that we could do to help.
For those that knew Tim, no-one would be surprised at the answer as he always put others before himself. He simply asked that his friends raise some money for St Barnabas Hospice so that others might have the same great care that he recieved.
We, his friends, pledged to make this happen........ but where to start? Thankfully we know some absolutely fabulous people, and the cause was taken up by colleagues from Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust. We are all so very grateful to them in helping us execute Tim's wish.
Please feel free to join us at Lincoln Golf Club on Friday 27th September 2019.
