As part of our Volunteers’ Week celebrations, throughout June (and into a little bit of July), members of the Hospice Senior Leadership Team and Extended Leadership Group visited our shops to say a big thank you to our amazing volunteers and also to those staff members who manage and support them.  It was a great opportunity for Hospice based staff to go out and thank those working on our local high streets.

Shops from Weybridge to West Ealing and Barnes to Banstead were visited – our Banstead shop even had a special volunteering event that our Director of Skills, Knowledge and Research, Jane Berg, was able to attend.

One Hospice based manager said they had “a lovely time, as I love seeing and thanking people and hearing all of their stories around why they volunteer… They were all very jolly and very much appreciated a visit and to be told how amazing they are and how much we appreciate them……it reminded me of why I love my job so much and what wonderful people we have to support us.”
