Your hospice; Your time
We are always grateful to our amazing volunteers. Quite simply we could not exist without them.
More than 1200 volunteers currently support the Hospice, with just over half in our shops, around 500 based in or from the Hospice and a further 100 fundraising on our behalf. Their time and energy are essential to delivering our services and add enormous value to the charity.
There are over 70 different volunteering roles attached to the Hospice including our Gardens and Flowers team, Ward Tea and Coffee volunteers, Day Service Hospitality volunteers and our Hospice Neighbours.
The 600 plus volunteers who support our shops enable them to open seven days a week and to generate around £1.6m each year for the Hospice. Our fundraising volunteers range from ambassadors who give presentations about the worth of the Hospice to groups such as the WI to those who take part in our street collections – during Hospice Care Week in October 2015 these bucket collections raised over £4000.
