"You make a difference!"

That's the message to volunteers as part of this year's nationwide Volunteers' Week which takes place from 1st to 7th June 2018.

We simply couldn't do what we do without the support of our brilliant volunteers - from driving patients to helping in our shops, and from providing bereavement support to organising fundraising events - their help is vital in allowing us to raise funds and care for our patients and their families.

We currently have over 330 volunteers - each one helping in their own unique way!

Last year our volunteers gave us over 50,000 hours of their time! 

Each person volunteers for their own reason - some to meet new people, others want to give something back to a charity close to their hearts. 

Meet some of our volunteers here.
