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.

Come and say “Thank you” to Bill on Saturday 16th July

You are invited to join the BBT on Saturday 16th July at 1030 in a celebration event to thank Bill Jones for everything he has done to contribute towards the success of Barnaby’s.

(No need to RSVP – just turn up!)

Bill has been an integral part of Barnaby’s since the very beginning. His enthusiasm, positivity, can-do attitude and straight-talking style have been exactly what Barnaby’s has needed, in good times and in challenging times. Bill has always spoken up for our volunteers, for good coffee, and for the village. He justly deserves a celebration of his efforts, and a well-earned rest. Thank you Bill!

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.

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.

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.
