What are the benefits of volunteering?
If you asked each of our volunteers what they get out of working here, you’d probably get a different answer from each one, but here are a few of their answers when we asked some of our volunteers at a recent event:
I find it very humbling"
I love my role in the day unit, meeting and talking to people"
It keeps me in a purposeful and 'working' role"
I love to come to the hospice - it makes me feel useful"
Having the privilege of working and meeting with wonderful and fantastic people"
I enjoy volunteering very much - sense of fulfilment and achievement. I enjoy working with staff, volunteers but most of all the patients"
Gaining vital retail experience and witnessing first-hand the growth of a fantastic organisation"
I really enjoy helping out, makes me feel good about myself"
I have grown in confidence so much since I became a volunteer"
Being here and helping people"
And the final word comes from one of our volunteers, Steve:
I didn't even think about checking my phone or emails once"
Glad you enjoy it so much, Steve!
