Attendees will be able to enjoy cocktails made with the St Barnabas spiced rum, created by local distillery Pin Gin for the Hospice’s 40th anniversary, feast on delicious street food bites, and celebrate the night with fellow charity shop lovers and St Barnabas staff.

The evening will be hosted by Charity Shop Girl, Jennifer Brady. Jennifer has been causing a stir on TikTok, Instagram and LinkedIn with her obsession for bargains and mission to get everyone shopping a little more sustainably.Woman with shoulder length brown hair, blue shirt, holding wicker basket and holding item in charity shop
