Sheila Addenbrooke, a volunteer at the Hospice for 4 years really enjoys her volunteer role in Bereavement Support. She tells us:

It is such a rewarding role, and I feel honoured to support our bereaved relatives. Sometimes it's easier for them to open up to a stranger.  You need to be a good listener!
