Hospice brings brand new menu and Wi-Fi access to Spalding cafe

St Barnabas Hospice has introduced a range of improvements to their Spalding café in the Market Place

Following a feedback gathering exercise from members of the public, St Barnabas Hospice are delighted to launch a range of changes and updates to their first ever café. The café is based in their Spalding charity shop in the Market Place.

Customers will receive the same quality of food and service, but at a lower price. The Hospice is also delighted to announce plans for selling reusable cups in the near future. More information on these will be released in due course.

As well as modifying the menu, St Barnabas has added Wi-Fi to the café. Not only will customers be able to sign in to this free of charge, but it also opens up more opportunities for the people of Spalding. The Hospice are now taking bookings for groups wanting to meet in an informal space, and also welcome in locals to have a drink whilst doing some work on their laptops.

From Friday 6th to Saturday 14th July, St Barnabas is running an exciting offer to those visiting their shop and café. Between these dates, anyone who spends £5 in the Spalding shop will get a free drink in the café.

Caroline Peach, Retail Manager at St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“We are grateful to everyone who has provided us with feedback, and are excited to see the new changes rolled out over the next few weeks.

“In particular, we are focusing on becoming more environmentally friendly. As well as looking at selling reusable cups, we are also encouraging members of the public to bring their own in. Anyone who does will receive a 25p discount on the price of their drink. We also have ensured that our drinking straws aren’t made from plastic.”

The café has a loyalty card scheme, where regular customers can buy nine hot drinks and get their tenth free. To get hold of one of these cards, ask at the till in the café.

All of the coffees sold by the St Barnabas café are made using a special blend created in partnership with Stokes Coffee. The blend, called Blend 35, was created as part of the Hospice’s 35th birthday year in 2017. It is described as a combination of Brazilian, Colombian, Peruvian and Indian cherry beans, show roasted to give a well-rounded, smooth flavour with a fruity kick. The beans used in the blend are certified by the Rainforest Alliance and the Fairtrade Foundation.

Customers can also purchase Blend 35 in bags from any of the 26 St Barnabas charity shops across Lincolnshire, at £4.99 per bag. It is available in both ground and bean format.
