Volunteers Week 2020
More than 500 local people volunteer their time and skill at Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice. Every day, volunteers help to make the hospice sparkle as we support local people with life limiting illnesses in a wide variety of ways.
From supporting Day Hospice patients to processing donations in our charity shops, every volunteer helps the hospice to provide the highest standards of care, support and companionship to local people. During these challenging times, many of our volunteers are unable to carry out their usual roles although a small team of volunteers continue to help at both the hospice and online shops.
Volunteers Week provides organisations with the opportunity to celebrate the amazing work volunteers do every day and this year will be no different. The hospice’s annual Staff and Volunteers celebration may have been cancelled but all staff and volunteers will receive their long service awards and a full Roll of Honour can be found below.
During Volunteers Week we would love say a huge THANK YOU to our wonderful volunteers, we miss you all.
