St Barnabas Hospice events

by | 11 March 2020 | Gainsborough, Local Charity

St Barnabas Hospice’s collection boxes have got the February blues… Is there anyone out there that can offer them a change of scenery for 2020? Chip shops, pubs, bars, reception desks hairdressers and where ever you could accommodate. I am sure they would be so much happier than sitting on our shelves. To give a box a home, please email or call 01522 540300.

Our Bring A Gift Coffee Morning at The George Henderson Lodge, Front Street, Morton was a great success, raising over £200. It was great to see so many people attend and a big thank you for all the wonderful gifts you donated to us. They will come in very handy for future raffles. A big thank you to our wonderful volunteers who helped to make it such a success.

I would just like to say a big thank you to Elaine Carrotte who received her 15 years’ service badge. Thank you for all your hard work and effort over these years volunteering for the hospice.

Gin and Jammies: Fundraising just got Gin’teresting!
Put on your jammies and enjoy a gin with friends for St Barnabas Hospice! A fundraising pack has launched to inspire a new generation of St Barnabas Hospice supporters. Fundraising doesn’t have to be hard work. It doesn’t have to include fitness training or finding sponsorship. It can be as simple as having a great time with your friends and donating the price of a few cocktails to a great cause.

St Barnabas Hospice helps 10,500 people each year in Lincolnshire with free hospice care. To continue to be able to offer this service to your family, friends and colleagues, we need to fundraise a colossal £5.5 million every year. We know how popular gin is at the moment, so we have joined forces with Pin Gin, a Lincolnshire company, to create an ‘at home’ party guide, and our very own Gin: Est. 1982 Bramble. Although you don’t have to purchase Est. 1982 Bramble to have a party — be comforted to know that all profits from this specific gin will go directly to the hospice too! This gin is available only online on Pin Gin’s website. To get involved with Gin and Jammies, download your free fundraising pack online today at

Following a review of what modern-day fundraising looks like, the fundraising team at St Barnabas Hospice has launched a recruitment drive for volunteer ambassadors to support them across Lincolnshire.

There is no set limit on the number of volunteer ambassadors that will be recruited; the hospice is simply looking out for supporters with a real passion for hospice care who feel comfortable talking to members of the public and having their photo taken.

As part of the role, ambassadors will be required to attend cheque presentations in their local community, give occasional talks on the work of the hospice and attend events local to them. Training will be given and mileage will be reimbursed.

I have been working for St Barnabas for almost a year now and it’s clear just how forward thinking the charity is. Fundraising is changing with the times and I’m proud to be part of an organisation that anticipates and puts plans into place for positive change. I believe this group of Volunteer Ambassadors will both recognise those people who want to go the extra mile to support the hospice in a slightly different way, as well as bringing the hospice closer to the local community.

We are looking for a range of people, regardless of age and ability, and the full job description can be viewed at
