Hugh Lowson’s column: Drop in to our informal volunteer recruitment open day on Friday 18 January

Friday 11 January 2019

A very Happy New Year to everyone who makes up our wonderful St Barnabas House community, whether patients and their loved ones, our amazing staff, supporters or volunteers.

With the start of a new year come new resolutions. Many of us set fitness or financial goals, but what about making a resolution that’s not only good for you but helps others too?

For anyone looking for a rewarding volunteering experience in 2019, St Barnabas is opening up its doors and inviting people of all ages, skills and backgrounds to an informal volunteer recruitment open day.

St Barnabas House depends on over 1,500 dedicated volunteers who help in the hospice, in the charity’s shops and at fundraising events. The open day will be a great chance for potential new volunteers to meet some of our current wonderful volunteers and find out more about the variety of different roles and benefits of volunteering for St Barnabas House.

Volunteer roles include Community Companions who visit patients in their own homes; volunteers who serve meals in the Day Hospice or greet visitors on reception in the In-patient Unit; drivers who collect and drop off patients to the hospice; Family Services Visitors who offer bereavement support; and other roles such as administration, fundraising event support, maintenance and gardening.

The volunteer recruitment open day will take place at the hospice on Titnore Lane, Worthing, between 10am and 3pm on Friday 18 January. For more information about volunteering you can call 01903 706315, email volunteers@stbh.org.uk or visit www.stbh.org.uk/volunteering
