Nominate an amazing volunteer

Posted on: March 12th, 2018

Our volunteers are essential to the work of the hospice. They help us to raise the £7.5 million we need each year to keep running, contributing to every aspect of the hospice by sorting donated goods to sell in our shops, greeting visitors in our reception, providing care for service users and their loved ones, maintaining our sites and gardens and helping in our offices plus much, much more.

The Volunteer Celebration Evening Awards Nominations for 2018 are now open and this is your opportunity to give heartfelt thanks and recognition to the volunteers who generously give the gift of their time to Dove House Hospice, without their dedication and commitment we simply wouldn’t be able to achieve the great things that we do.

Our army of volunteers are working tirelessly every day to help us to provide the care needed to our patients and their families. We regularly receive feedback from people telling us how volunteers across the organisation are making a huge, positive impact on their lives, our volunteers are passionate about giving something back and make a real difference to the experience of others by living the hospice values, with every volunteer being united, positive, passionate and professional.

Last year over 218,000 hours were generously donated by our volunteers - that’s a 600 hours every single day.

Do you know a volunteer that goes the ‘extra mile’ to support the work we do - please take a few minutes of your time to nominate a special volunteer who deserves recognition for their continued support, commitment and contribution to Dove House Hospice, before the closing date of 6th April 2018. Nominations can be made by staff, volunteers, service users (patients and their families) and the public.
