Shop assistants, patients buddies, bucket collectors and fundraisers; St. Joseph’s Hospice has a number of volunteering roles available and will be holding a Volunteer Open Day on Sunday 4th February for anyone who would like to find out more.
The Open Day will run from 2pm to 4pm and visitors will also have an opportunity to speak to other volunteers for an insider’s view about what’s its like being part of the hospice team. They will also be able to look around the hospice and see first hand how all the money raised by our volunteers is spent and the difference it makes to people’s lives.
Siobhan Clinton, Volunteer Co-ordinator, said: “Volunteering is a fantastic way to contribute to your local community and a wonderful way to get out and about and make new friends. Without our volunteers, we simply couldn’t run the hospice and so by donating just a few hours a week, you would be making a huge difference to the lives of all our patients and their families at such a difficult and distressing time for them.”
St. Joseph’s Hospice has lots of plans in store for 2018 so that it can provide more services to more people. But, finding new sources of income is crucial for this and so there will be lots of opportunities to get involved in raising money, whether it’s through helping its charity shops, supporting fundraising events or bucket collecting at key events and locations across Merseyside.
Siobhan added: “We have lots of different volunteering roles available, for example, our shops in Southport and Formby are really in need of more shop assistants, but we also look at what skills people have to offer so it may be that you can help us to provide new an exciting service to our patients and their families.”
If you can’t make it on 4th February but are interested in volunteering and would like to find out more, call Siobhan Clinton on 0151 932 6046 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
