Weston Hospicecare relies upon the kindness and help from volunteers to support the running of the charity.
Just their time is worth over £1million a year to the hospice and they play a vital role across the organisation giving support in shops, helping the fundraising team and by supporting patients.
There are plenty of benefits to volunteering at Weston Hospicecare including gaining experience, socialising, making new friends, and helping a local cause.
Maria Beaton, who is the hospice’s Volunteer and Training Manager, says the hospice simply could not run ‘without’ the essential support from volunteers.
She added: “All of our volunteers have their own piece of the jigsaw which keeps the charity going. But we now need more people to come and help us.
“Currently we have people who volunteer with us to enrich social needs, some do it to gain experience and others help us because they have an emotional connection with the work of the hospice.
“Whatever the motivation, we always need people to kindly give their time to help us with all sorts of voluntary roles.”
