Bridget joined The Butterfly Hospice Trust after careers in high street banking and primary education.
The move into the charity sector was motivated by wanting to do something a little different, but still to have a meaningful purpose. At the time, the newly opened hospice in Boston was the opportunity which appealed immediately. Employed with the Trust since 2016, Bridget moved to into the Chief Executive Officer post in December 2019 and is committed to working proactively with our nursing partnership, Lincolnshire Community Health Service. Bridget enjoys her interactions in the communities we serve at the hospice, as well as forging links with local groups and businesses who are extremely supportive of our cause. Bridget is exceptionally proud of her dedicated staff team and volunteers whose contributions, along with the kindness and generosity of the local public, enable Butterfly Hospice patients to receive the quality care they need and deserve.

Paul has lived in the Boston area for over thirteen years, and for many years worked as a manager for a local horticultural company, and has for the last nine years been involved locally with Cruse, the national bereavement charity, as a Bereavement Volunteer, and also on the management team.
Paul decided to move away from commercial business in 2019, and is now a part-time pastor for a local church. He manages the small fundraising and volunteer team in the charity offices, and is also responsible for the newly formed therapy service.
I relax by spending as much time as I can with my wonderful family.

I first became involved with The Butterfly Hospice Trust as a Trainer, delivering training to Trustees and Volunteers. I was then asked to join the board in 2013 and became chair in 2017.
My background is as a Trainer specialising in providing training to the Voluntary sector on Governance issues and responsibilities of being a Trustee. I delivered the Level 2 and 3 accredited Management programme for a number of years in partnership with Boston College and Holmes Consultancy.
I am really looking forward to the challenges of the next couple of years knowing the support is there to make sure the Hospice develops and continues to offer the service to the patients that are receiving excellent care and the families who have the reassurance the people they care for the most are being looked after in a peaceful and caring atmosphere as well as receiving the most professional of nursing care.
Lorraine Lenton, Chair of Trustees
As a trustee and the Chaplain to Butterfly, I hope I can support everyone who works for the continuing success of the hospice.
I see what a difference it makes to the lives of our patients and their families and this inspires me to work to ensure we can continue to provide the service and to expand our range of facilities on offer.
Supporting staff is very important, both charity staff and volunteers and LCHS staff who work so hard to make sure we can offer the best possible environment for those who entrust their care to us. Hospice care is about more than the physical side of treatment; It encompasses spiritual and emotional care as well and, as a trustee, my aim is both to provide the care and to help develop resources for the future.

I have joined the Hospice to support the retail aspect of the charity bringing 29 year of retail experience. I joined Sainsburys Farnborough when I turned 16 as a student. I am looking forward to supporting the Butterfly team in delivering an ever important revenue stream for the Hospice from our expanding retail stores and developing both the stores and the colleagues who work in them.
Born in 1972 and married to Sam; we have 2 children, Jack 24 ,Kieran 21 and a 4 year old Grandson. I joined Sainsburys Farnborough when I turned 16 as a student. Having worked my way through the various training schemes offered by, at the time the best retailer in the country, I quickly understood what it takes to be a great retailer, the importance of understanding what the customer wants and how engaged and inspired colleagues are key to delivering results.
In 2006 we settled in the village of Sutterton, working in many of the local Sainsburys stores including Spalding, Bourne , Sleaford and eventually becoming Store manager at Stamford. In 2018 I decided on a change of career and started working as a civil servant based at a local RAF base working as a Supply Manager. I must say that having a job working with one of my passions, the RAF Typhoon and Aircraft in the Battle of Britain memorial flight really is a dream come true for me. Nothing beats finishing work on a Friday afternoon and watching the Typhoon or Lancaster take off in front of you, it truly is a sight I am privileged to be able enjoy.
My hobbies include Football supporting Arsenal, travel, I love holidays in the Sun, cooking, especially BBQ, anything to do with Military and spending time with my family.
