St Nic's celebrates its amazing volunteers

We're joining the 2023 Volunteers' Week celebration running from June 1-7

What is Volunteers' Week

Volunteers’ Week is a time for us to say thank you to everyone who volunteers for St Nic’s to make a difference.

The week is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering, we have hundreds of people who give their time to the Hospice in a number of different ways.

At St Nic’s we couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers.

Our staff share their messages of thanks

Our volunteers

Meet Christine, one of our Psychological Services Team volunteers

The pandemic and a breast cancer diagnosis meant she had to put that on hold for a while, but she remained connected to St Nic’s.

During the pandemic, Christine (pictured front centre) began painting portraits of those healthcare professionals connected to her journey; she then expanded this to other key and frontline workers.

With a collection of 101 portraits, Christine decided to turn them into a book, HOPE, which captures snapshots and reflections of our Covid-19 experiences, giving a little insight into the impact of covid on individuals and our communities.

All proceeds from HOPE will go to St Nicholas Hospice Care, for which we are so grateful.

Here Christine talks about HOPE and her volunteering for St Nic’s.

Could you volunteer at one of our fundraising events?

To make sure our wide variety of Hospice events and supporter fundraisers run without a hitch, we could do with some more volunteer support.

Not only is volunteering at one of our events a really flexible way to support the Hospice, but it’s also a lot of fun and a great chance to meet people and support your community.
