Why I'm a Love Your Hospital volunteer

Posted on: Monday, February 22, 2016

After taking voluntary redundancy following a career of 37-years, I wanted to make good use of my free time....

I'd had good experiences at St Richard's Hospital in the past and decided I wanted to give something back. Every day in the charity office is different and I've been involved with sourcing toys for our youngest patients, helping out at Fontwell Race Course and other community events, collecting and delivering charity collection pots and updating Fund records in the office, tidying and logging stock.

What I enjoy most about volunteering has been working in a very supportive and friendly environment  and feeling that I am making a worthwhile contribution to the hospital and our patients.

I feel like a member of the team, am always made to feel welcome and appreciated. I am included in discussiins where appropriate regarding fund 

Having been with Love Your Hospital for almost 2 years I have learnt how support from the local community helps the charity to improve the patient experience. It is a rewarding and enriching experience to volunteer and local people can feel that Hospital services will be improved for the local community, including their own family and friends

Personal benefits to me include the contribution to an interesting and varied life after full time ended, learning new skills and meeting new people
