Lincoln Business Club charity cheque presentation to St Barnabas Hospice

Lincoln Business Club is continuing its long run of charity donations with the first cheque for 2016 being presented to St Barnabas Hospice. Local Charities are put forward by the members and a shortlist was voted on by Lincoln Business Club members at the November meeting. The donation of £250 was presented to Caroline Swindin from St Barnabas Hospice by club Chairman Zoe Easey during the monthly networking meeting at Lincoln City Football Club on Sincil Bank on 27th January.

St Barnabas is a local charity providing support to adults living with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

Caroline Swindin said “We are incredibly grateful for every donation we receive. As a charity we need to raise £5.5million per year to continue the services we provide, and every donation really does help”.

Lincoln Business Club is a not-for-profit, voluntary organisation that provides networking opportunities for the city’s business community and currently has over 800 members.

The club has been running since 2004 and was founded by local business people who decided that Lincoln needed an inexpensive and relaxed forum for local business people to meet. The majority of members’ entrance and sponsorships fees are donated to local good causes.

Club Chairman Zoe said: “It’s very important that the club and its members are able to give our support to local charities, afterall they are part of our business community too”.

Lincoln Business Club meets at Lincoln City Football Club on the last Friday of every month at 7am. The next meeting is Friday 24th February and costs £4 which includes free tea and coffee.
