I’ve been volunteering at the Hospice for about 5 years. I knew lots of people who either worked or volunteered at the Hospice and they all recommended it. At the time I was made redundant so was looking for something to fill my time. I like to be busy so enjoy volunteering at the Hospice and knowing I’m giving something back to the community is very rewarding.
I’ve had lots of different volunteering roles at the Hospice, from store collections, helping out at events and most recently volunteering in the eCommerce department, listing pre-loved items on our eBay and Amazon sites.
I’ve learnt lots of new computer skills, since joining the team. I volunteer once a week and the flexibility, fits well around my work.
