If your list of New Year’s Resolutions is made up of wanting to try new things, meet new people, raise money for charity or make a difference in the community, volunteering with Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity could be the perfect opportunity for you.
‘Volunteering is the ultimate way to do something truly meaningful and start the new year as you mean to go on. By gifting your time to a Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity shop, you are doing something very special for so many others,’ says Charmain Behan, Volunteer Manager at the charity.
This year, choose to join our supportive family of volunteers and give your time, in whatever way you choose, to help the charity be there, with the best possible care and support, for patients with life-limiting illnesses across Buckinghamshire and its borders, whenever and wherever they need it.
Graham, volunteer at Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity said: ‘Once you start volunteering, you are hooked. It’s an absolute pleasure to volunteer and the people are all fantastic. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of volunteering to just do it.’
Volunteering offers an opportunity to gain new skills, experience something different, whilst giving back to your local community. Becoming a volunteer also allows you to develop valuable job skills, build your confidence and connect with other people.
There are volunteer roles available to suit everyone, whatever your interests and availability, from helping in their eleven shops across in Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas, to volunteering in the Hospice, helping at events throughout the year, or even becoming Florrie Bear!
