COVID-19 UPDATE – 15 June 2020

  • In line with the government advice, volunteers are currently not able to help at the hospice.

 

The Hospice relies very much on our team of volunteers. Their invaluable contribution of time, commitment and life skills are recognised by patients, relatives and staff. Without their input the Hospice could not provide such a wide range of support and care.

We need volunteers from all walks of life, and anyone over 18 years of age may apply to join our volunteer service.

We would very much like to hear from you if you think you have any special skills or talents that would enhance the lives of our patients. For an informal chat, please contact our Volunteer Co-Ordinator on 01264 835279.
