Lindsey Lodge Hospice volunteers are pictured at the Hospice with Volunteer Services Manager Nerissa Gallagher (second right).We'll be celebrating the contribution of over 400 volunteers during Volunteers’ Week 2018 (1 – 7 June) and raising awareness of the wide variety of volunteering opportunities it has to offer.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice benefits from over 50,000 hours of voluntary time spent supporting its patient care, retail and catering activities, so it is staging a series of special events and activities to show just how much it appreciates the support of its dedicated volunteers, along with an Open Day on Thursday 6 June to welcome the general public.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice Volunteer Services Manager Nerissa Gallagher said: “Our volunteers are absolutely vital to the day to day running of our Hospice – without their help and support we wouldn’t be able to deliver our excellent patient care.

“Some people volunteer because they want to ‘give something back’, some want to learn new skills or develop existing ones. Others just enjoy being part of a team, meeting new people and making new friends.
“One thing they all have in common is they give their time and enthusiasm freely, to take on roles they know make a huge difference.”

“We’re incredibly fortunate in having a highly dedicated and active volunteering community, who generously give their time to us and Volunteers’ Week is a perfect opportunity for us to show them just how much we appreciate them!”

She added: “This year, we’re inviting would-be volunteers, and anyone interested in the work of Lindsey Lodge to book onto one of our free information sessions, one at 10.30am and the other at 2pm, where we’ll have volunteers sharing their experiences, information on volunteering roles, an opportunity to ask questions, along with coffee and cake.”
