Short summary of the charity events on in Swanmore Hampshire

We are closed

Much as we would prefer to be able to support our community by remaining open, there are a number of challenges and risks associated with keeping our volunteers and customers virus-free. As such, we have opted to close Barnaby’s until further notice. We promise to be back just as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. This may take several weeks, but we will keep you posted here and on our Facebook page.

Meanwhile, we’d like to thank all the people who have done so much to help us remain open thus far. Stay safe everyone.

Charity Awareness Day
Rainforest Alliance UK

In partnership with the Y7 students at Swanmore College, we will be supporting the Rainforest Alliance UK as part of our Charity Awareness Scheme. A collection tin will be out all week, and we’ll hold a full Charity Awareness Day on Saturday 7th March. All you have to do is come in and have a coffee, because 50% of our takings will go direct to this very worthy cause!

Rainforest Alliance UK is a non-profit organisation, whose aim is to protect forests, improve the livelihoods of farmers and forest communities, promote their human rights, and help them mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis. Further information is available via www.rainforest-alliance.org/uk.

Charity Awareness Day
British Heart Foundation

In continuation of our Valentines Day theme, this Saturday will be a Charity Awareness Day for the British Heart Foundation. Half of our takings on the day will be sent to the BHF, along with the contents of the red tin by the till. Please give what you can.

BHF’s vision is a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases. They fund research to keep hearts beating and blood flowing.

Charity Awareness Day
Trinity Winchester

As part of our ongoing support for charities with a connection to the Village, we will be holding a Charity Awareness Day on Saturday for Trinity Winchester. 50% of our takings on the day will be given to this incredible venture, along with the money from the tin by the till.

Trinity Winchester addresses the effects of homelessness and vulnerability through specialist practical and emotional support. Theses effects can include addiction, physical and mental ill health, poverty, social isolation and domestic abuse. More at trinitywinchester.org.uk.

Charity Awareness Day
Crisis at Christmas

On Saturday 14th December, we will be highlighting the work of Crisis at Christmas as they approach their busiest time of the year. Half our days takings will be given to Crisis as a feature of our Charity Awareness Scheme, so please come and have a coffee and a slice of homemade cake!
