Meet the St Barnabas House Lottery team
We’re here to help you win!
The St Barnabas House Lottery is run by our Lottery Manager, Alan Maher, and a small but dedicated team of Lottery Administrators. All memberships, payments and queries are handled by the team in our Lottery Office right here at St Barnabas House.
Our Lottery canvassers
We work with fundraising companies and individuals (known as canvassers) to promote our Lottery and to inform you about the work we do in your community.
Update (Wednesday 4 Nov): following the government announcement on Saturday 31 October all face-to-face fundraising will be temporarily stopped on Wednesday 4 Nov. We will continue to monitor the situation and government advice.
On 18 March we temporarily stopped all face-to-face fundraising with immediate effect due to the coronavirus crisis. As the constraints began to ease, we reintroduced face-to-face fundraising for a trial period starting from 25 August. Small teams of canvassers began fundraising door-to-door and in supermarkets in the local community. We conducted full risk assessments in line with the government guidelines and will continue to closely monitor the situation.
The Lottery is a very important source of income for the hospice and our canvassers do a fantastic job, asking members of the public if they would like to join the Lottery. Our canvassers also carry information about the care we provide for people in the local community.
We closely monitor and regulate the work of our canvassers. If you meet a canvasser on your doorstep, they will have a clearly displayed identification badge and will be wearing St Barnabas House tabards or jackets.
If you wish to check any of their credentials, please feel free to call our Lottery Office on 01903 871842. We also have fundraising canvassers who visit supermarkets and shopping centres to promote our Lottery. These representatives will also have the same identification.
Our canvassers form an important part of the Lottery Team, and we do our utmost to ensure that they are fully trained and professional at all times. If you feel that a canvasser is not representing us well, is not courteous, appears to be pushy or if you have any other concerns, please do let us know immediately.
