“Why I volunteer”
“I enjoy my days here – I really do,” says Jane Foley who is part of the volunteer team at our shop in Upton upon Severn.
The former teaching assistant, whose husband was cared for by St Richard’s, has volunteered at the shop for two-and-a-half years.
Among her many duties are serving customers, sorting stock, helping with pricing items and making the tea.
She said: “I get to meet and talk to lots of people. I really do feel volunteering here is worthwhile – I’m doing something and I’m making a difference.”
Watch our Q&A on Facebook with Kirstie Smith, our HR and Volunteers team, and Bev Ellerton, Kidderminster Shop Manager, to find out more about what’s involved in being a shop volunteer.
“I like helping here, it gets me out and meeting people. The staff are very nice and helpful and I also get to meet lots of nice customers.”
During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.
The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
