Marking the Queen's Diamond Jubilee at Princess Alice Hospice
5th June 2012
... Comments

Princess Alice Hospice has been operating for decades and services and activities could not exist without the dedicated and continuing support of its volunteers. Retail, reception, administration, fundraising, ward, social work, bereavement support and spiritual care all require support from local community members who want to make a difference and help the Hospice to provide vital care and support.

The Hospice appreciates the vital support provided by its volunteers throughout the year; however, it would like to thank them again as they acknowledge 'National Volunteers Week' that is running from June 1 to June 7.

Many volunteers - including Volunteer Champions, Susan Taylor and Linda Park - have been busy this week helping Day Hospice patients to create a jubilee inspired collage. The large piece of artwork of a union jack complete with corgis, jewels, handbag and 3D crown was designed by student nurse Lauren Davies, from Kingston will be displayed in the Hospice reception over the celebratory weekend.

Many of the charity's dedicated volunteers will not be able to celebrate the Jubilee weekend with family and friends, as they will be busy helping to support and care for patients at the Hospice. There will be a celebratory tea on Tuesday for staff, volunteers, patients and their families. All volunteers will be making a difference whether they are receptionists, ward clerks, coffee shop assistants or ward refreshment assistants, and the amazing thing is that dedication and commitment like this cannot be bought!

If you would like more information about volunteering at the Hospice or with one of its 34 charity shops and becoming one of the team, please contact Sue Pitchers, Volunteer Coordinator on 01372 461856 or
