With Hallowe’en and bonfire night just around the corner and Christmas only a couple of months away, there’s still time to get involved in The Big Get Together to raise money for St Barnabas House this year.

The Big Get Together is a great opportunity to get together with family or friends to remember or celebrate the life of a loved one who may have been cared for by St Barnabas House.

You could hold your event at a specific time of year, such as Hallowe’en, Christmas, New Year or Easter) or, if your Big Get Together is to remember a loved one, you can choose a date that is more memorable to you.

Of course, you don’t have to hold a festive-themed event; you could take inspiration from TV and hold a Great British Bake Off themed get together, host a cocktails and canapés evening or dinner party and ask invitees to make a donation, or simply invite friends round for afternoon tea.

The money raised through The Big Get Together will make a big difference, helping to provide vital hospice care services in your local community.

At St Barnabas House it costs more than £6million a year to provide all of our care services, both at the hospice and out in the community, and only a small percentage of those costs are covered by statutory funding.

You can sign up to hold your own Big Get Together this autumn by visiting or calling our fundraising team on 01903 254777 for more details.

Thank you for your support.
