South Yorkshire charity in search for new trustees

7 January 2019

Barnsley Hospice is searching for passionate and motivated people to join its team of Trustees.

The charity, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, provides specialist compassionate care for people with progressive life-limiting illnesses - and supports those close to them too.

The hospice is looking for people to strengthen its Board as it moves into 2019.

Julie Ferry, Chief Executive of Barnsley Hospice, said: “Specialist knowledge and experience would be beneficial, however we welcome applications from any interested individuals, particularly those with a passion for the charity. Our Board is committed to supporting our charitable aims and the new Trustees will play an important role in ensuring the hospice remains accessible to those most in need of specialist care.”

The closing date for applications is Friday 8 February 2019 at 4.30pm. For more information or an application form, please contact Sue Cutler on 01226 323621 or email

Barnsley Hospice opened its doors in 1994. Based in Gawber, the charity provides specialist care for anyone in Barnsley with a progressive life-limiting illness - including cancer, motor neurone disease and heart disease. It has ten beds for inpatient care and provides day care at the on-site Limes Support and Therapy Centre.
