Calling All Complementary Therapists

We need more qualified complementary therapists to volunteer at Rotherham Hospice with our patients. Our patients greatly benefit from receiving various treatments but as we only have a very small team of therapists, it can be very difficult to arrange.

If you are registered with an accredited association, have some spare time and would like to make a difference to someone's day, please contact Jean Clarke on 308913 or email volunteering@rotherhamhospice.org.uk. Thank you
