The Norfolk Hospice held a thank you event for the latest of their volunteers to reach milestone years of selfless service on Thursday 14th December 2017. The eight volunteers from the Retail division, Fundraising team and the Inpatient Unit that attended have an amazing 41 years of service between them and there were five more that were unable to attend, making a total of 86 long serving volunteers of 5 years+ still actively supporting the Hospice – incredible!

Barry Francis, the Hospice’s Distribution Centre Manager worked out that Brian Tamplin (pictured left) had enabled the Hospice to sell electrical items to the value of £100,000+ in the 5 years he has PAT tested for the Hospice. This is just one example of how our volunteers’ efforts are vital to us.

Lynn Lockheart, Director of Operations and Retail at The Norfolk Hospice said

Our volunteers have donated a massive 32,000+ hours of their time from April to October this year, and it’s fantastic that we have so many that feel able to go on giving for years and years – they are a very special bunch of people.

We are pleased to be able to express our thanks by presenting them with a long service badge which we hope they will wear with pride, as we are so proud of them.
