Warehouse Volunteer
Brief info

I have volunteered at the Donation Centre for 4 years. I was unemployed and the Job Centre asked if l’d be interested in volunteering, they gave me a list of organisations to contact. l noticed the Hospice straightaway, as my mum spent the last few weeks of her life at the Hospice, where she was given brilliant care.

At the time I was looking to keep active whilst l was out of work and wanted to be part of a team, while giving something back to the Hospice. I volunteer 3 days a week, and help with people dropping off their donations and sorting through the donations.

The best part is the camaraderie in the warehouse. We work hard, but we also make sure we have fun - listening to the music and having a silly dance sometimes. Personally, I have gained lots of new friends and confidence.
