THE PRIMROSE Hospice is looking for volunteers in 2019 and are appealing to people looking for a new challenge in the new year to get in touch.
There are a variety of roles at the charity – from drivers to counselling, complementary therapies to fund-raising, and everything in between.
There is a particular need for people to volunteer in its charity shops in Rubery and Redditch.
Jo Wright, the Primrose Hospice’s volunteers manager, said: “New Year is a great time to take on a new challenge or fulfil a resolution that benefits others as well as yourself.
“Volunteers are so very important to the running of Primrose Hospice – we wouldn’t be able to support our patients and their families without them.
“Our volunteers say they enjoy being a valued part of team Primrose and enjoy meeting and helping others.
“We really do value their service and recently held a Volunteers’ Celebration event to show those who donate their time just how much they mean to us.
“We would love to welcome more volunteers to the team, especially at our charity shops in Rubery and Redditch which play a vital role in raising much needed funds for Primrose.”
Studies show that 76 per cent of people who volunteered in the last 12 months say volunteering had made them feel healthier.
The same study showed 96 per cent of volunteers felt their role with the charity had ‘enriched their sense of purpose’.
