New Role at Hospice for Former Volunteer, Megan

16 Jul 2021

When Megan Riley, signed up to volunteer at Dr Kershaw’s back in 2019, she never anticipated that two years later she would be working as an employee at the Hospice.

Her initial decision to volunteer was to support the Hospice who cared for her grandma at home, using the time she would have spent with her grandma helping others at Dr Kershaw’s.

Seeing a part-time role advertised in the Hospice’s Lottery Team, Megan, 21, thought it would suit her perfectly and fit in well around her studies of the final year of her Politics degree.

Megan said: “The whole atmosphere at the Hospice is welcoming and all the staff are so friendly and approachable. When I saw the role advertised I thought what better place to work than somewhere I’m already familiar with and love to be.”

Three months into her new position as Lottery Assistant, supporting the administration of the Hospice’s Weekly Lottery and quarterly Bumper Draws, Megan said: “I was thrilled to be appointed and am thoroughly enjoying my role. I like a new challenge and it’s been lovely to have a reason to leave the house after online learning at home for my degree, it’s been amazing to feel part of a team again. Sometimes starting a new job when you don’t know anyone can be a little bit daunting but I haven’t experienced that at all!”
