St Barnabas Hospice is delighted to announce they have been chosen as Charity of the Year by Lincoln-based manufacturers Fenner Precision and James Dawson.

The silicone and rubber experts are committed to supporting local communities and charities through its Works Council initiative, which chooses a charity to support.

The business has been based in Lincoln since 1865 with over 300 employees across two sites, where fundraising events will be taking place throughout the year.

Caroline Swindin, Fundraising Development Manager at St Barnabas Hospice, said: “We are very grateful to Fenner Prescision and James Dawson for choosing to support our charity.

“They have such a strong local presence, and it’s wonderful partnering with such a widely regarded business. No doubt some staff members will have had personal experience with our Hospice and we hope their positive experiences will help drive their fundraising efforts.

“We provide a diverse range of services to our local communities, and we would not be able to continue our work without the generous donations of our supporters. Every pound that gets donated really makes a difference, so thank you to Fenner Precision and James Dawson for choosing us.”

Natasha Fryer, Customs Export Manager at Fenner Precision and James Dawson said: “We are really pleased to be supporting St Barnabas, as supporting a local charity was one of my main aims and I’m happy the Works Council board voted for St Barnabas.

“We’ve got loads of activities planned to help raise as much as we can throughout the year!”

For every pound raised for St Barnabas, 74p goes straight towards delivering, and improving the care and support the charity offers to over 12,000 people every year. The other 26p goes towards generating future income.

Many thanks to all Fenner Precision and James Dawson staff who are set to help raise vital funds for their local Hospice.
