Robert Barnes

I am a retired soft furnishings supplier and interior designer with 45 years owning my own business. My interests include musical theatre and I was the founder trustee to Viva theatre company in 1997.

I have been a member of the Rotary Club Of Ely for 25 years and a fundraiser for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity since 2010.

I became an ambassador to help raise the profile of the Hospice, to attend function and fundraising events and also to speak on behalf of the Hospice. Moreover, my role involves listening to people who want to share their experiences.

I have worked in the Hospice both on the inpatient unit, and the day therapy unit.
