Fundraising Support Group Member
Support Groups are friendly teams of local people who work together to raise funds for the Hospice through organising bake sales, events, coffee mornings, distributing collection boxes – the ideas are endless!
The group can consist of two people or one hundred people and roles can vary within the group, such as Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and Volunteers. You will be supported every step of the way by your contact at the Hospice and is a great way of getting involved in the local community, meet new friends and learn new hobbies.
Our companions help to deliver amazing care for people in the early stages of dementia as well as giving their carers a few hours break. We’re looking for volunteers who enjoy the company of others; can have a good laugh as well as being caring and compassionate. You don’t need to have had any previous experience of working with people with dementia but a willingness to learn is essential. You will be matched up with a person of similar interests for a couple of hours per week or per fortnight. No personal care is involved, and full support will be given to you throughout training and volunteering, so you can concentrate on enjoying making a real difference to the life of the person and their carer.
