Do something different this year – why not volunteer?
Whichever part of the Hospice you are in, at whatever time of the day, you’ll meet a volunteer. Our volunteers are involved in almost every aspect of life at Trinity and they help to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere which can help dispel any myths about hospice care. If you have a few hours to spare, you could be part of our story too.
Volunteers help on the reception desk, make and serve tea for patients, they look after the gardens and drive patients to and from appointments. You can also volunteer out in the community, perhaps in our Trinity shops or marshalling at our big fundraising events.
We have around 900 volunteers whose combined efforts save us about £1.6 million a year: to us they are priceless.
Almost anyone can volunteer:
Most of our roles ask you to give between two and four hours each week. We can also welcome you on an ad-hoc basis. You’ll need to be reliable and committed to helping us do our good work to ensure we can provide the best possible service to our patients.
You can volunteer during the week or at weekends either in the day or in the evening. Our rotas are covered from 9am until 9pm, seven days a week, 365 days a year. If you can’t make a regular commitment don’t worry, we are grateful for any time you can give. Perhaps you could help at some of our fundraising events?
I volunteer because it’s my way of giving something back – Trinity has helped my family, so now it’s my turn.
