Short summary of the charity events on in Swanmore Hampshire

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.

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!

Charity Awareness Day
Royal British Legion

This Saturday, Barnaby’s will focus on the work of the Royal British Legion as part of our Charity Awareness Scheme. The RBL was formed in May 192 with the objective of bringing together four national organisations of ex-Servicemen that had established themselves after the First World War:

  • National Association of Discharged Sailors & Soldiers
  • British National Federation of Discharged & Demobilised Sailors & Soldiers
  • Comrades of The Great War
  • Officers’ Association

The amalgamation of these diverse bodies can be attributed largely to two men: Field Marshal Earl Haig and Tom Lister. Lord Haig served as President of The RBL until his death in 1928. For more information, head to britishlegion.org.uk.
