Short summary of the charity events on in Swanmore Hampshire

Christmas goodies from BW Men’s Shed

On Saturday 16th December, we will welcome the creative chaps from Bishop’s Waltham Men’s Shed.  After the weather unfortunately ruined their recent event in Bishops Waltham, they still have lots of Christmas goodies to sell, so they will be set up outside Barnaby’s from 10am.  Please come and support them.

Inside, we’ll be supporting the works of Trinity Winchester once again. Trinity Winchester addresses the effects of homelessness and vulnerability through specialist practical and emotional support. Head to trinitywinchester.org.uk to find out more.

Helping Hooves return

One our favourite local causes is Helping Hooves.  Based here in Swanmore, Helping Hooves assist those experiencing change caused by illness, injury, recovery or other trauma. So we’re looking forward to seeing “Mouse” and “Hamish” here on Saturday 18th November, to be brushed and loved by Barnaby’s customers . Bring an apple or a carrot!

As is customary on our Charity Awareness Days,  we’ll be giving half of our takings on the day, plus anything you are able to donate through our ‘Tap n’Go’ service.

Classic Car Summer series ends on Saturday

Our ever-popular Classic Car Summer Series ends this Saturday, with close to 60 cars expected of all shapes and sizes. If you are planing to display a car or two, you may arrive any time from 0945, when a marshal will show you to a space.

The event will be supported by Barnaby’s “popup” coffee shop, serving coffee, tea and yummy homemade cakes made by volunteers in the village and our friends at Bishops Waltham Country Market. Barnaby’s will donate ALL of the takings on the day to local charity the St.George Foundation.

Head to www.barnabys.coffee/classiccarsummer to find out more about the series.

Meet the First Responders here today

Our Charity Awareness Scheme will continue on Saturday, with the arrival of the South Central Ambulance Charity (SCAC). Please come along and meet a First Responder, climb in to their ambulance, find out what they do, and see the equipment they carry.

We’ll be supporting the SCAC by donating half of our takings on the day, in addition to any funds collected. Head to scascharity.org.uk/about-us to find out more about the SCAC.

Supporting the ICRC to help those in need in Libya

Medicines, food, household items and body bags are to be distributed to thousands of residents after ‘violent, brutal’ floods. ICRC teams are being sent to the region to distribute humanitarian assistance. Kitchen sets, mattresses and hygiene items are to be distributed in Derna in coming weeks jointly with the Libyan Red Crescent Society. Medicines are also being donated to authorities and Libyan Red Crescent in coming days.

Please donate generously using the SumUp card machine.

Supporting Homestart Hampshire this Saturday

This Saturday, we will be supporting the work of Home-Start Hampshire through our Charity Awareness Scheme.  This scheme raises awareness of local causes, and supports them financially. Even if you just pop in for a coffee, you’ll be doing your part – buying some cake will make it even better!

What do Home-Start Hampshire do?
Being a parent, whatever the situation, can be very challenging. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births. That’s when parents need support. That’s when Home-Start Hampshire can help. Head to home-starthampshire.org.uk to find out more about their work.
