Introducing Retford Life’s charity of the year

by | 30 September 2022 | Local Charity, Retford

We’re sure you now can’t miss the hidden gem that is Bassetlaw Hospice Tea Bar, situated at the entrance of the outpatient department at Retford Hospital.

With fresh new signage created free of charge by the Life Design and Print team at Retford Life, this is the perfect place to pick up a drink and a snack.

The service is run by volunteers from Bassetlaw Hospice and raises much needed funds for the charity.

After selecting Bassetlaw Hospice as our magazine’s Charity of the Year, we’ve also been delighted to donate a supply of stock to help the Tea Bar get back and running after its long closure since 2020.

The volunteers are looking forward to welcoming back hospital patients, visitors and staff and hope that they will be happy to see the Tea Bar open with hot and cold drinks and snacks available once again.

Opening times

  • Monday to Wednesday: 10.00am – 4.00pm
  • Thursday: 10.00am – 1.00pm
  • Friday: 10.00am – 12.00pm

Why we chose Bassetlaw Hospice

Retford Life magazine is committed to supporting our local charities and community groups and we are proud to dedicate pages to sharing their news and updates in our publication every month. But we wanted to do more.

We decided to choose a Charity of the Year to give an extra financial boost and offer our expert services too. We know Bassetlaw Hospice has touched the lives of so many people in Retford and the surrounding area and we are incredibly lucky to have such a fantastic organisation in the town. We hope our partnership helps them to raise their profile and generate more income so they can continue to offer their support when it’s needed most.

Situated in a peaceful location at the rear of the Retford Hospital, Bassetlaw Hospice provides palliative care and support for patients, their families and carers.
