Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity has over 400 volunteers, working in their shops, their offices, at the hospice, drivers, gardeners and bereavement listeners, plus those out supporting their events in the community.
But they are urgently need more volunteers to join the team as many have stepped back from their roles following the Covid-19 pandemic, on both a regular and ad hoc basis.
‘Our volunteers are absolutely invaluable to us and we couldn’t do what we do without their incredible support,’ says Penny Bradshaw, Head of Volunteering at the Charity. ‘We offer full support and training for new volunteers, wherever and however they volunteer.’
There are lots of opportunities available to suit all interests including Hospice Drivers, Hospice volunteers, Bereavement Listeners, Complementary Therapists, Online Retail, Fundraising Support, Events, Shop Volunteers, Showroom Van Drivers, Office Admi and, Marketing & Communications support.
‘The benefits to volunteering are endless, not only can it help you develop your career by gaining valuable experience in the workplace, it’s also a great way to connect with other people and build confidence.’
So, if you are friendly and motivated, and up for a challenge to support local hospice care, please get in touch at email@example.com or visit their website www.fnhospice.org.uk/volunteer.
