Show you care, be amazing and become a Dr Kershaw’s volunteer today!
Volunteers are at the heart of Dr Kershaw’s hospice and without them we wouldn’t be where we are today. The gift of your time and skills really is invaluable, and just a few hours can really make a big difference to both patients and carers, and also benefit you too!
There are so many ways you can give your time. How about regular shifts at the hospice - whether on reception, serving refreshments, or even transporting patients. Or helping us raise money for patient care by assisting in one of our four shops or helping out at events? Whatever your reason for volunteering, there really is something to suit everyone – whether you’re a student looking to develop skills, hoping to get some experience to help you land a new job or are retired and want to use your time well to support a good cause.
Some of our volunteers have been with us for over 10 years and the variety of opportunities can make every day different. See some of our volunteers' stories below and see how they have been giving just a few hours and how they feel about their time with us at Dr Kershaw’s.
