University Student Tom volunteers with us on a Wednesday afternoon, supporting our Strength and Balance Group in the Living Well Centre, led by our Physiotherapist Jenny.
Catching up with our Chaplaincy Team
We had the privilege of being able to sit down with our Chaplaincy Team at the Hospice to learn about how they support patients, guests and families with their spiritual, religious and pastoral needs.
Meet some of our Namaste Care Volunteers
Meet our very own dream team, Maureen and Rita!
You’d think they’d been friends their whole lives but Maureen and Rita didn’t actually meet until they both started volunteering for St Cuthbert’s Hospice 15 years ago!
Meet Karl – Volunteer Retail Driver
“A year after Carmel’s passing, I decided that I wanted to give something back to the Hospice as a way of saying thank you for all they had done for us. I’d been lucky enough to retire from work and had a little spare time each week so I applied for a volunteer driver role. I’ve now been part of the team since 2018 and I enjoy every minute of it! I’d recommend it to anyone. If you’re at a loose end and have the time to spare, why not give your time to a worthy cause?”
Meet Adam – Gardening Volunteer
Adam has been volunteering with us in our Hospice Gardens since February 2019. Here, he shares his experience, hoping to encourage more young people to volunteer.
Meet Anna – Volunteer Retail Assistant
We sat down with Anna recently to chat about her role as Volunteer Retail Assistant at our Houghton-le-Spring shop. It was lovely to hear why she chose to volunteer and what it means to her.
Volunteering at Rainbow Ramble
"The Rainbow Ramble was a wonderful day of community, colours and most importantly charity."
