Volunteering Works Wonders
We have launched our first ever volunteer recruitment campaign ‘ap-pealing’ for new people to come join our existing bunch of supporters. Under the headline ‘One of your five-a-day’ Volunteers Services Manager Mary Morgan hopes to convey the fun and well-being people gain from volunteering and in the coming months she will be out and about in her banana suit to spread the message.
“We have a fantastic group of volunteers helping us, but as we’re expanding our services to reach more people, we need to increase the support in our teams. This campaign is specifically focussed on recruiting more fundraising and retail volunteers'” explains Mary, and adds “volunteering is fun, rewarding and purposeful, good for you, good for us and good for everyone!”
Helping others is scientifically proven to lead to enhanced well-being, and it also benefits our Hospices, who provide care free of charge though out North West Surrey. Every year we support around 5,500 local people and their families and look after patient in their own homes, in the hospice buildings, as well as through day care services and counselling. Volunteers play a major part in raising funds for our clinical services and we are therefore looking for people who can give their time on a regular basis to support our fundraising and shop teams.
If you would like join the Hospices’ volunteer team, then please contact Volunteers Services on 01483 881750 or send an email.
