Every June we come together to help mark national Volunteers’ Week (1 to 7 June) – a celebration and a chance to say thank you to all our wonderful volunteers across the Trust.
This year, as part of #VolunteersWeek, we’re putting out a call to action and asking for people to come forward if they’re interested in giving up a bit of their spare time and try their hands at helping out.
As part of our 2021 strategy, we’d like to recruit 1,000 new volunteers over the next three years and Volunteers’ Week is a great platform to use as a springboard for this ambitious aim.
There are lots of reason why people volunteer, to give something back, to help make a difference or perhaps just to get out and socialise with other like-minded individuals.
We value the contributions all our volunteers make, to help our staff and patients on our wards and across our hospitals every single day.
Contributions like that of Nigel Brasier, an administration volunteer at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston.
Nigel was the worthy winner of the volunteer of the year award at this year’s glittering ULHT staff awards, nominate as being the ‘face’ of volunteering at Pilgrim.
He helps out five days a week meeting staff, supervisors and potential new volunteers, helping with their work including their core learning. Always with a smile, wicked sense of humour and a positive outlook.
