Pygott & Crone Estate Agents have chosen St Barnabas Hospice as their charity partner until May 2023, aiming to raise more than £20,000 for the charity.

As part of that fundraising effort, the estate agents will become a Silver Sponsor of St Barnabas Hospice’s Heart Trail, which will officially get underway in 2023, aiming to raise over £300,000 and attract 500,000 visitors to Lincolnshire.

Pygott & Crone will start up their own fundraising initiatives as well as put a spin on some of St Barnabas’s more popular activities, such as the Pub Quiz and 40 for 40 Challenge. To get their fundraising underway, eight members of the team will be taking part in this year’s Great North Run.

Members of the public will soon be able to see the partnership in action on their digital screens and with collection pots in Pygott & Crone branches across Lincolnshire.

Caroline Swindin, Fundraising Development Manager at St Barnabas Hospice, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be working collaboratively together with the teams at Pygott & Crone; such partnerships are invaluable both in helping to raise awareness of the diverse range of care and support we provide along with raising vital funds. This is an exciting partnership for both parties and will enable the team at Pygott & Crone to join us in fundraising and volunteering to make a difference to those in our local communities.”

Personally, my family had their support at what was a difficult time, and they were amazing. This Charity provides services when families most need support and care, and the service is provided in such a caring way. It’s probably not until you need their support you realise how amazing they are in our communities.

“Hopefully, we can help ensure this support is available to more families in the future.”

Jamie Aspland, Branch Manager of Pygott & Crone Sleaford, is a Volunteer Ambassador for St Barnabas and is fully supported by the company and will continue to act in this role and make a positive contribution to support the work of the Hospice.

Jamie said: “I personally experienced St Barnabas and the care they offer when my late father passed away, I have continued to support this amazing charity both personally and with our company. St Barnabas will always hold a special place in my heart for being there when I needed them most.”
