Our volunteers are crucial to almost every aspect of what we do. Without people generously giving their time and skills, we would be unable to continue delivering vital care and support to our patients and their families. In 2021/22, even with Covid restrictions meaning many volunteers could not return to their roles, they still contributed nearly 50,000 hours of their time, skills and knowledge.
There are so many ways you can get involved as a St. Michael’s Hospice volunteer, whether it is at the Hospice, in the community or in one of our shops.
Volunteers are our representatives in the community
Volunteers are our representatives in the community and go out of the way to support us with collections, distributing collection tins and lots more. They will nominate us for funding in their workplaces, local shops and pubs, or hold a stall at their village fete. Volunteers are also invaluable in helping us in the office with admin and tasks.
As a really new fundraising team, volunteers provide us with a wealth of knowledge, and experience of what has happened at the Hospice in the past and bring us ideas on what we should be looking to do in the future.
Thank you to all our volunteers, no matter what your role. Whether you help us once a year, or every week, we are so grateful to you for donating your time to help us. We simply couldn’t do it without your help!
