Businesses urged to celebrate with Barnsley Hospice

20 November 2018

Businesses are being invited to book their Christmas works do with Barnsley Hospice.

The hospice is organising its first ever Christmas Bash on Saturday December 22 at the Holiday Inn, Dodworth.

The event, which costs £16, will feature a DJ and a party band, playing hits from the last seven decades.

Martyn Hughes, events fundraiser at Barnsley Hospice, said: “Lots of people like to go out with work colleagues in the run up to Christmas and by coming to our Christmas Bash they will be guaranteed a great night out, and will be raising money for charity.

“But of course we want to see anyone who would like to join us with friends or family for what will be a fun event.”

Doors will open at 7pm, with last orders at midnight. Bar meals will be available and there will be a raffle. The award-winning four-piece band the Monotones, who have played all over the UK, will perform classics and requests. For group bookings there will be one free ticket in every ten.

Barnsley Hospice has to raise £2.2m a year, on top of the £1.6m it gets from the NHS. It is based in Gawber and provides specialist care for anyone in Barnsley with a life-limiting illness, including cancer, motor neurone disease and heart disease.
