We are delighted to be welcoming the team from Youth Options here on Saturday 2nd December. Their mission is driven by the belief that every child and young person should have the opportunity to realise their potential, whatever their life circumstances.
So if you have a young person in your life, come along and have a chat, or play a game with us! The team will be here from 10am.
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.
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.
We are pleased to confirm that Barnaby’s has. today paid £600 to Macmillan Cancer Support, following last weeks amazing participation in The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning. This is a new record of us, so a huge thank you to everyone who baked cakes, made donations, or just bought a coffee on the day. It all helped!
Once more, we are delighted to be playing our part in the Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. So on Saturday, our amazing volunteers look forward to serving you with coffee and yummy homemade cake from 10am to 1pm. Save the date! Bring your family and your friends and be part of something truly amazing!
Fancy baking a cake for Macmillan? Please drop your marvellous creation – large or small – in to Barnaby’s at 5pm on Friday 29th or at 9am on Saturday 30th. It all counts, so thank you!
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.
Almost £30 million has been raised through The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning over the years, and Barnaby’s are delighted to confirm that we’ll be getting involved again in 2023. Set your calendars for Saturday 30th September and pop to Barnaby’s for a yummy coffee and a slice of homemade cake. We’ll also have some games for our younger visitors to enjoy.
Fancy baking a cake for Macmillan? If so, please drop your creations with us by 9am on the day itself, or at 5pm the evening before. Please include a list of ingredients. Thank you!
Incredibly, over 70 cars came to Swanmore last weekend, breaking yet another attendance record. Images can be seen on our Facebook page, and in Mondays edition of The Times newspaper!
As always, the takings collected by our event ‘popup’ coffee shop are all given to a local charity nominated on the day. Pictured above is one of our awesome volunteers, Berty Ferrone, presenting £200 to Philip Dean of the St.George Foundation at their annual fundraiser held in the village later that same day.
Our next Classic Car Summer event will be on Saturday 22nd July.
On Saturday 17th June, we will welcome The Soberton Strummers here to play in support of our Charity Awareness Day for Prevent Breast Cancer – the UK charity committed solely to predicting and preventing breast cancer. The Strummers have a particular connection to the charity, as the Hampshire Chronicle here reported back in February. As a consequence, Ted Quincey has already raised over £2,000 for the charity, to which we are delighted to contribute.
See you all on Saturday 17th June.
