Lincolnshire Imp Trail Auction

12 October 2021

Lincolnshire Imp Trail Auction

We are proud to have been a part of such a successful event for such a good cause, managing to raise £128,000 for Lincoln St Barnabas Hospice Charity. The 31 statues sold at an average selling price of £4,000, with  A Little Lucky Imp, fetching the highest bid at £10,000! 

The Lincolnshire Imp trail started on July 3rd and saw 30 Imps get places across Lincoln and put on display for all to enjoy, guiding people round the sights and monuments of Lincoln.  Find out more about the trail, including a map to follow along here: The Lincolnite

The auction was even hosted by well known Lincoln auctioneer Ian Walter. If you would like to see all the imps, the auction, pick your favourite or see which one took the £10,000 highest bid, you can watch the event back through this link: Click Here


St Barnabas Hospice Charity

St Barnabas Hospice is a local independent charity and every year we support more than 10,500 people across Lincolnshire affected by a life-limiting or terminal illness. It is through the kind support and generous donations of the people of Lincolnshire that they have been able to continue to grow and expand our reach of care across Lincolnshire over the past 35 years.

All of their Care and Support is Free of Charge, and therefore have to raise as much money as possible to ensure patients and their families continue to receive the care when they need it.

If you would like to support St Barnabas Hospice Charity, the easiest way is via their Facebook page. Click Here to donate
