Volunteering Information and Recruitment Event - Thursday 6th June
We rely on volunteers to help out in our charity shops, sort through donations in our distribution centre and add books to our online bookshops.
Hospice volunteers work on the Inpatient Unit and we have a specially trained volunteer team supporting patients and families in the community.
Every year our fundraising events raise more than half a million pounds, volunteers are part of the team that make that possible.
Our volunteers provide vital support, can you?
If you can spare a couple of hours a month or a day a week, we’d love to talk to you.
The event is being held at the Martlets Hospice, pop in anytime between 2pm and 7pm on Thursday 6th June to see what we’ve got on offer.
If you can’t come to our Volunteer Recruitment Day call our Volunteer Coordinators on 01273 273400 or email email@example.com for more information on volunteering for the Martlets.
Volunteering for the Martlets is a fun and rewarding experience. You’ll get personal satisfaction and make new friends, not to mention the skills that you’ll learn along the way. Many volunteers have discovered that volunteering can also help them back to work. You might be surprised to learn that at the Martlets volunteers make up the majority of the work force; in fact, the Martlets has over 500 volunteers.
Volunteers are essential within all parts of the organization; in the hospice working alongside staff and patients, in our charity shops, our furniture warehouse, eBay shop and online books department as well as within our fundraising team. We could not continue to offer our vital services without the commitment and generosity of our volunteers. The hours that our volunteers work would cost the Martlets over £400,000 if we had to pay for the time they give us. So you can see that volunteers are an essential part of life here.
Join us and use your skills to help make a difference. Whether you’re retired, a student (minimum age of 16 years in our Trading Company, 17 years in the hospice itself) or perhaps the children have left home – whatever your circumstances, if you have the time, we need your help.
