Get involved

There are many ways to get involved and support your local hospice.

We rely on fundraising, shops, volunteers, donations and support from people like you to keep providing our specialist care to the community. Running the hospice costs nearly £10m a year and any and all contributions make a real difference to the local people and families we care for.

There are so many ways that you can get involved and help support us, take a look below for some ideas!

Fundraise for us

From sponsored walks, runs and rides to sky-dives and wing walks. Whether you want to join in with an organised challenge or dream up your own, you can fundraise for St Barnabas House.

See our list of events for some inspiration, and if you need help with your sponsorship we’re on hand to help, with everything you need to know to get fundraising.



Even if you only have a few hours to spare, your time can make a big difference. We have many different volunteering opportunities, including helping in our shops and warehouse, cheering at events, or visiting patients in their homes. Find volunteering opportunities.

Make a donation

Our most important source of income is the support and donations we receive from individuals. Any gift to St Barnabas – whether you’re making a single or monthly donation, supporting one of our appeals, or paying for a day of care – goes a long way.

You could also give a gift in memory of a loved one, give in celebration, sponsor a nurse or leave a gift in your Will.

Create a tribute page

An online tribute page is the perfect place to remember your loved one if you have friends and family all around the world. In this digital space you can share pictures and stories, light virtual candles and donate to your chosen charities for years to come, no matter where you are. Create a tribute page.


Contribute to our Walk of Life

Our Walk of Life welcomes visitors to the hospice with hundreds of positive messages of remembrance. Purchasing a paver dedicated to your loved one not only honours their memory, but also reminds us of how connected we all are and how our community worked together to build St Barnabas House. Find out how to dedicate a paver.
