“I volunteer to help people” – Debbie’s story

7th June 2019

To celebrate Volunteers’ Week, from June 1st to 7th, we are sharing stories from just a few of the fantastic people who give up their time to support St Richard’s Hospice.

Read Debbie’s Story

Debbie Holt volunteers on our Reception at St Richard’s Hospice.

She says: “It’s very busy on Reception – people are phoning in, or they’re walking in and it’s one of the hardest things for some people to have to do.

“So, if I can help them get through that experience and help them with a smile, a helping hand or even a hug – then that’s what I get out of volunteering, just helping people.”

An array of voluntary opportunities are available both at the hospice, in the community and at its shops and warehouse.

Find out how to get involved with volunteering at St Richard’s Hospice.
