Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity seek new volunteers

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity usually has over 400 volunteers, working in their shops, their offices, at the Hospice plus those out supporting fundraising activity in the community. Following the Covid-19 pandemic, volunteer numbers have dropped and they urgently need more volunteers to join the team.

“Our volunteers are absolutely invaluable to us and we couldn’t do what we do without their incredible support,” says Penny Bradshaw, Head of Volunteering at the Charity. “We offer full support and training for new volunteers, wherever and however they volunteer.”

There are lots of opportunities available to suit all interests including Retail Assistants, Hospice Drivers, Fundraising Support, Hospice volunteers, Bereavement Listeners, Complementary Therapists, Online Retail, Office Admin and Marketing & Communications support.

“The benefits to volunteering are endless, not only can it help you develop your career by gaining valuable experience in the workplace, it’s also a great way to connect with other people and build confidence,” says Penny.

So, if you are interested and want to find out more, simply pop into any of the Charity’s shops, or get in touch at
