Keeping it in the family for North London Hospice
CategoryFundraising|North London Hospice|VOLUNTEER
Local artist and sculptor Linda Lipinski is supporting her son all the way to the finish line. Daniel Barron 36, a deputy head teacher for a school in Hertfordshire will be competing in this year’s London Marathon on 13 April in aid of North London Hospice. Linda has been a complementary therapist volunteer at the Hospice for twelve years.
“The Hospice is very dear to our hearts. My best friend passed away twelve years ago at the Hospice, from pancreatic cancer. We are supporting Daniel every step of the way. He is training really hard at the moment and so we decided to help him raise his sponsorship money as he has to raise a minimum of £2,000. “At the end of this month we will be hosting a coffee morning in aid of the Hospice. There will be home made cakes, a tombola, crafts, face painting for the little ones and lots of other treats. My daughter Katie will also be selling her handmade phone covers, brushes and mirrors. ”North London Hospice is a wonderful place. We are very lucky to have the Hospice in our local community. At one point or another we have all known someone who has spent time at the Hospice or has been cared for by them at home. They can only continue to do what they do through the charitable donations, so it’s vital that we support them.” Linda’s passion lies with her paintings. She regularly exhibits her artwork at PS Arts in Hertfordshire. Linda has kindly decided to give away one of her paintings in a raffle, with all proceeds going to the Hospice. ‘Blue Waters Algarve’ is an acrylic and textured paste piece and is on display in the reception area of the Finchley Hospice. Raffle tickets are £2 and can be bought at the reception area of the Finchley Hospice.
