Raising money for St Barnabas Hospice

Raising Money for St Barnabas Hospice

Over the past year, James Dawson has raised over £2,500 for local hospice care charity St Barnabas Hospice.

As part of the “Works Council” initiative which aims to improve four core aspects of the
business focusing on Wellbeing, Social Activities, Communications & Charity & Community.

A charity of the year was selected last year by council members who voted to support St Barnabas in June of 2022 and since then a number of activities have been planned, from monthly Day off Raffles, to Pub Quizzes and Bake Sales. With the support and involvement from everyone in the business staff have raised £1,640 with the company contributing an additional £1,000 to bring the final total to an impressive £2,640.

It’s been a fantastic year supporting St Barnabas and everyone here is exceptionally happy with the amount raised, the charity and community team have put a staggering amount of effort into planning and organising the events and its great to be able to support such an incredible local charity

Each year we need to raise over six million pounds to keep providing care to people living with a life-limiting or terminal illness. The money raised by James Dawson is such a huge help and we are very grateful to everyone who has supported our charity by participating in the raffles, quizzes and other initiatives. A big ‘thank you’ from everyone at St Barnabas Hospice, your support means the world to us.”

This year employees gave suggestions on which Lincolnshire charities they would like to see supported before a short list was made which includes:

  • St Barnabas Jospice
  • Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance
  • Jerry Greens Dog Rescue
  • The Bearded Fisherman

Voting took place in May to choose the new charity of the year with the final votes being counted.
