Classic cars return this Saturday

A collection of stunning Classic Cars will return to Barnaby’s this Saturday, forming a wide selection of pre-1990 vehicles for you to enjoy. Come and have a look from 10am onwards. Barnaby’s famous popup coffee shop will be there, serving tea, coffee, drinks, and homemade cakes from our friends at Bishops Waltham Country Market.

Head to www.barnabys.coffee/classiccarsummer for more details about our series of classic car events.

Meet the First Responders

Many of you will know that First Responders from South Central Ambulance Charity (SCAC) attended an incident in Barnaby’s last weekend.  We were unaware of the work of the SCAC until we got chatting with them afterwards, so are delighted to confirm that we’ll be hosting them under different circumstances as part of our Charity Awareness Scheme on Saturday 8th October.
So come along and meet a First Responder, 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.

Barnaby’s set for The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning!

Over £10m has been raised through The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning over the years, and Barnaby’s are delighted to confirm that we’ll be getting involved again in 2022.  Set your calendars for Friday 30th September for a coffee and a slice of homemade cake.

You can donate now at thyg.uk/BUS007479915 or join us on the day to be part of something truly amazing!

Classic cars raise over £100 for Macmillan

Some truly stunning classic cars gathered outside Barnaby’s this Saturday, as part of our Classic Cars @ Barnaby’s series that runs until October. Images can be seen on our Facebook page.

As ever, our fabulous volunteers ran a popup coffee shop in support, offering tea, coffee and homemade cakes.  It raised well over £100, which we’ll be giving to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Our next gathering of classic cars is on Saturday 27th August.

We meet the RNRMC

The subject of our Charity Awareness Scheme (CAS) this month is the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC). We have an RNRMC rep in the village and a serving Royal Marines soldier – both were in Barnaby’s on Saturday.

As will all CAS events, half of our takings on the day were added to whatever donations were made by you – our fabulous customers – and given straight to the RNRMC.

About the RNRMC – serving in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines represents an enduring commitment to protecting our island nation. This commitment is not without sacrifice. Those who serve can find themselves in a uniquely difficult and dangerous environment facing extended periods of time separated from loved ones, often with very little opportunity for communication. Head to rnrmc.org.uk to find out more.

Barnabees launched

We are delighted to announce the arrival of Barnabees – a brand new beehive that will form a significant part of the wonderful new garden design project led by the Y6 children of Swanmore Primary School.

Pictured above is Rebecca Parker (new Deputy Head Teacher at the school) receiving a large cheque from Alastair Walton (Barnaby’s Business Team) alongside Carl Weston (Site Manager and newly-appointed Head Beekeeper!)  Carl has been busy preparing for the arrival of the queen bee in a few weeks time, and expects to see the first honey crop in 2023. It is Barnaby’s intention to further support the Primary School by offering Barnabees Honey for sale in Barnaby’s next year.

With our great thanks to the team at FOSPS for helping to make this happen! We look forward to keeping them, and you, posted.

Meet ‘Aurora’ and friends this Saturday

On Saturday 18th June, we’ll be hosting a number of trainee dogs from Hounds For Heroes as part of our Charity Awareness Scheme. Come and meet ‘Aurora’ and her handler John Branson. She is a 12-month old golden retriever in training for Hounds For Heroes. In the next year, she will join a higher training program ahead of becoming an assistant dog.  John will be able to tell you the amazing things that these dogs are capable of and how they are trained.

Half of Barnaby’s takings on Saturday will be added to your donations, and sent to Hounds For Heroes. Please come and give them your support.

£770 donated to Christian Aid

Last month, we supported Christian Aid with a number of activities and items on the big screen.  Our local Christian Aid rep – Wendy Horn – popped back in to Barnaby’s recently to collect a cheque for £770.

On receiving the cheque, Wendy (R) commented “We are so grateful to the Barnaby’s team  for helping to raise such afabulous amount of money. Thank you.!”

Sarah Walton (L) commented “Our support of Christian Aid is a great example of Barnaby’s at its very best – as a community hub supporting charitable works here and elsewhere. Our thank go to all the wonderful volunteers who help make this place such a great success”.

Classic car owners raise £182 for JST

The second in the Classic Cars @ Barnaby’s series was a great success, with a large number of cars on show for the first time.  Some came from as far east as Bosham and as far north as Guildford. Word is clearly getting out!

As before, Barnaby’s popup coffee shop was there in support. Event organiser Alastair Walton offered to give all of the days takings to the Jubilee Sailing Trust, and £182 was donated! As luck would have it, JST Ambassador Roger Morfill was in Barnaby’s having a coffee, so we sent him home with a big cheque! The picture shows Sarah Walton handing it over to a very happy Roger.

Thank you to all who came, enjoyed, and donated.  Our next Classic Cars @ Barnaby’s event is on  25th June.
