Volunteers are a vital part of our care. We have volunteers in every part of the Hospice - helping to care for patients, in the kitchen, as hairdressers, in the gardens, working in the shops. Last year our volunteers put in more than 48,000 hours.

Why not join them? It's worthwhile - and often great fun! Call the Volunteers' Office on 01904 77 77 65
