Making a difference
Volunteering at St Wilfrid's
Research shows that volunteering is good for your health! We all know that volunteering is a good thing to do and maybe it’s something you’ve been meaning to get round to? Giving your spare time really can help make a genuine and significant difference to local people living with a terminal illness.
"As we celebrate volunteers’ week once again I am delighted to formally thank all our wonderful volunteers for everything they do to support the vital work of St Wilfrid's Hospice. Since the Hospice opened in 1987 we have cared for over 17,000 local people and their loved ones, and volunteers have been integral to our care since the very beginning.
There are so many roles for volunteers to contribute to our work and each and every one of our volunteers, now in excess of 500, are helping us to make a difference to local lives. Last year the weekly contribution from volunteers increased to an incredible 1,572 hours.
Every day, our volunteers help us to go the extra mile to support patients and those who matter most to them, in so many varied and often imaginative ways! Fundamental to our care is ensuring every patient we support knows that we care about what matters most to them and that we will do our very best to help meet their needs. The volunteers in our shops do a great deal to support our customers and donors and the many people in our local community who gain a lot from visiting our shops regularly. There are many other ways that volunteers support our work, including fundraising in our community and supporting our education programmes.
We always welcome interest from potential new volunteers and are really pleased to welcome any new volunteers to our team; if you join us now you can be part of our exciting future as we move towards our new hospice in Bosham!"
