Volunteers Week 2020
St Joseph’s Hospice is delighted to be part of a collaborative action of organisations championing a united response for Volunteers’ Week 1-7 June. This week Volunteer Managers across the UK are coming together to say a massive thank you to all volunteers.
Volunteers have played a vital role in helping the nation through the current pandemic. They will go on to play a role in helping the nation get back to the things that we love as we ease out of lockdown. By joining forces in Volunteers Week 2020, we are aiming to increase visibility of the vital efforts that all volunteers have made this year.
Throughout the week we will be showcasing the amazing contribution volunteers have made and on Friday we will be doing it in song, do not miss it!
The heart and soul of St Joseph’s is its volunteers and each day we miss you in new and different ways, not simply because of the gaps in what we can provide to our patients and users such as complementary therapies or teaching art, but because your presence signifies the goodness of the world and that everything is going to be alright. When you start to return we really will know that everything is going to be ok.
