This 3rd – 9th June is National Volunteers Week, and we want to highlight the importance that volunteers have here at St Wilfrid’s.

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” – Lois Howell, Chief Executive

We are incredibly grateful to have over 450 volunteers who generously donate their time to support our services. Whether it’s helping at our shops, keeping our gardens looking beautiful, helping on the Ward or any other role, our volunteers are making a big impact in our community.

All of us at St Wilfrid’s want to send a massive thank you to all of our volunteers for their continued support and generosity to the charity.
