Volunteers Week 2021

Here at Alice House we are extremely lucky to enjoy the support of a huge team of volunteers who are dedicated to supporting the work of the Hospice.

Our Volunteers are an essential part of our team and provide vital support in all areas of the Hospice including helping with patients, handling essential administrative tasks and providing much-needed support for fundraising and our charity shops would be unable to remain open without them.

Volunteers Week is our chance to highlight some of the amazing work our Volunteers do and to say a massive THANK YOU to each and every one of you!

Read about some of our inspiring volunteers below and remember, these are the tip of the volunteering iceberg. The people who give up their precious time and invaluable skills to your Hospice are what makes what we do here possible!
