Employee Charity Engagement
“I was delighted to be selected to take part in the volunteering day at Our Lady’s Hospice. The day was a very interesting one, everyone was so nice and welcoming and every single person I met had a smile on their face. We helped out in the fundraising department, the hospice shop and also with the online orders. The work that’s done behind the scenes is amazing and I found it to be a very reflective day. It reminded me to be thankful for all that I have.”
“The hospice does so much work that I had never heard of, not only does it facilitate cancer patients but it also deals with patients with other terminal illnesses and other debilitating illnesses. They have about double the amount of volunteers as regular paid staff so it shows how much time is given up by people all year round to keep it going. It was great to help out if only for a day and see and hear about the real workings of the hospice.”
