Volunteering | Midhurst Palliative Care - 5 Oct 2022

From Shopping to Bereavement Support

I have met so many wonderful people and had so many varied experiences

I joined as a volunteer nearly 12 years ago.

During that time, I have performed many different tasks; I've sat with patients to give relatives a short break, I've shopped for people and taken them shopping, and driven them to and from hospital appointments. I have also helped in the Midhurst office.

About eight years ago I was offered bereavement volunteer training, which I undertook and I am now a trained bereavement volunteer.

I have met many wonderful people and had so many varied experiences.

My personal life is busy but the team are really flexible, which has enabled me to carry on with this meaningful, rewarding work in a well-run organisation full of amazing committed people.
